Bluesky Launches Biggest Ever Online Map Shop

May 21, 2013 -- UK aerial mapping company Bluesky has launched its biggest ever online map shop. Providing easy and cost effective access to hundreds of thousands of aerial photographs the Bluesky MapShop offers a range of purchase options including GIS ready digital image files and hardcopy photographic prints. The new Bluesky MapShop also provides access to a national heighted building map, detailed national height models, LiDAR as well as a range of other GIS data including Ordnance Survey map products. These are all accessible through the new user friendly MapShop interface.

“We like to think this is not just another online map shop,” commented Rachel Tidmarsh, Managing Director of Leicestershire based Bluesky International, “rather a shop window to our largest ever collection of high quality geographic data solutions including our very latest products which are currently unavailable anywhere else on-line.”

The Bluesky MapShop www.bluesky-world.com/mapshop is easy to use with visitors able to search for their area of interest by place name, postcode or OS Coordinate, professional users can also upload GIS files, such as shp and KMZ files, to identify their area of interest. The MapShop preview window automatically displays the most up to date aerial image of the chosen location. Users can choose alternative epochs or select from the other geographic data products on offer. Purchasing of data is simple, straightforward and secure and account options are available.

Data on the Bluesky MapShop is continually updated and added to as new products are created and new areas of the country re-flown. Plans are already underway to add additional geographic data products such as thermal mapping, historic aerial photographs and Bluesky’s National Tree Map.

“With nearly 40,000 gigabytes of data covering the whole of England, Wales and Scotland – more than one and a half million square kilometres in total, the latest MapShop is a must visit. As we are continuously adding new coverage and new products we strongly recommend that visitors pop back regularly just to see what’s new,” continued Tidmarsh.

Data currently on offer through the Bluesky MapShop includes two epochs of standard resolution (25cm) aerial photography: coverage from 1999-2005 and 2006-2012. Higher resolutions (12.5cm and 10cm) are also available for selected urban areas.

The MapShop also offers online access to complete Digital Terrain and Surface Models for the whole of England and Wales (5m DTM and 2m DSM) as well as more detailed LiDAR data for selected areas. Ordnance Survey products available through the Bluesky MapShop include OS MasterMap and OS VectorMap.  In addition heighted versions of both OS MasterMap and OS VectorMap are available.
