It is more expensive than the now lost free version but cheaper than the commercial subscription.

Why use near map over the many alternatives such as google maps and Microsoft ?
  Iain Chief Commissioner

Location: Concord, NSW
Well the simple reason for me is better resolution, georeferenced images that are current (yes I have spotted two with my projects in them). But you are right in that you can use Google and in NSW SIX - I'd forget about the MS products.

Skybox looks like an interesting alternative if you can pay for it, they have their own satellites and produce moving images. You can even task their satellites over a region that interests you, for a price: http://www.skyboximaging.com/

Nearmap is streets ahead of any other alternative.  It has better quality maps, an easy to use interface and has frequent updates with ability to access previous photos.  I miss it badly and would quite happily pay for it.  
Google maps is great for maps and streetview, but is not so good for aerial photography.  It is also seldom updated with no ability to access previous images.

Skybox has a nice new website and a team of typical tech starts up - young blokes and no women but not much more than press releases level information.  I could find nothing on whether their satellites cover Australia and I suspect they probably don't. A UAV might be a more cost effective method of getting specific data targeted for the area you are interested in.

There is a strong rumour that in NSW LPI is working on a system for supplying cheap aerial imaging on the Clip and Snip model that they use for cadesteral and topographic data. This would certainly be cost competitive with Nearmap especially as many railway archaeologists don't necessarily need the most recent imagery.

I thought Nearmap was great, but I can't really justify the cost.

BTW, Google Streetview now has the ability to roll through the timeline of shots they've taken. Obviously they only really work where a lot of passes have been done. I recommend having a look at the Springvale Rd Nunawading rail crossing as an example.

This came out with the new maps update. It doesn't work in all areas, only those where Google have done more than one run. Go to Google maps, zoom in on your area and drag the yellow peg guy to the spot. In the top left of the screen it should say "New - streetview *date*"

It looks like it was for a limited time but I would email them and ask given that their website is very hard to use.

Seems that they kept every email address from the days of the free version, for I have had 3 emails from them in the past week trying to get me to sign-up. No thanks.

So Is there a 12 Months package for $99 ?

Or Is that only a smoke screen !

They've been sending me a $99 per year offer covering all of Australia with 50 MB monthly. The first two months are unlimited.

That seems reasonable value... but it doesn't cover cover most of the remote mountain areas that I'm interested in.

If you are interested in Queensland better images, rail and road centre lines, and property boundaries and other data are available through Queensland Globe.

http://www.dnrm.qld.gov.au/mapping-data/queensland-globe

This opens in Google Earth but accesses the Queensland aerial photography.

There is now a connection to a New South Wales Globe through the Queenslans site.

Actually I totally forgot that of course their coverage is limited to the areas where there is most demand for their images this is because I am working in these areas as well and it is always handy to see what I am working on but if you are outside these areas it is a bit tough. They do Broken Hill though.

For me the bigger package works well but there are other options depending on where you are located.

I'd love to take up this offer!  I put in an inquiry a few weeks ago but have yet to receive any emails back.  I'd pay $100 in a heartbeat for that offer.

The email has lots of graphics with the key info, so I can't reproduce it here.

PM me your email address and I will forward it to you. Smile Offer ends June 30.
