Aurora is proud to announce expanded data coverage through our partnership with Google, granting unprecedented HD imagery access to all our customers and an expanded map of 3D imagery to our customers!
HD Imagery by Google
All Aurora customers have access to a high-definition source of satellite imagery for designs--Google's HD imagery. The HD images will allow you to design with unprecedented accuracy. Google HD imagery ranges in resolution from 25 cm, which allows you to visualize all roof faces clearly and spot most obstructions, to 10 cm, which allows you to spot even smaller obstructions and visualize the roof texture.
Standard Google Satellite Image
Google HD Image
Standard Google imagery and Bing imagery will still be available under the imagery dropdown, as well as Nearmap HD (add-on for individual plans.) European users will have access to Vexcel high-resolution imagery instead of Nearmap.
LIDAR by Google
Google 3D will expand the coverage map of our existing LIDAR data, unlocking LIDAR benefits to a wider range of sites in the US and adding additional LIDAR to Europe.
*International Google 3D data shows approximate location
Simply load LIDAR, and Aurora will select Google 3D or Aurora LIDAR automatically, based on coverage area. European users will also have access to Vexcel LIDAR data.
To view or switch your data source, just go to LIDAR settings.
