Now You've Seen Your House, Here's More Uses For Online Aerial Imagery [Cheat Sheet]

Look past the price tag to see real value

Here we reviewed the differences between aerial and satellite imagery and how to download it for CAD and GIS projects. But what if you just need access to view the imagery outside of a traditional desktop mapping software?

Free viewers are great for very basic research, but the licensing restrictions that prevent the imagery from being used in commercial applications, plus the lack of tools and features that address business needs make these freebies impractical for work.

More complex than a free viewer, but less complex than CAD and GIS, FBS offers an alternative online mapping application called VuMAP that's a good fit for legal research, estimating construction projects, and for communicating spatial information.

Download the chart below to see all the advantages of using VuMAP over a free service, then try a free trial subscription.
