Pitney Bowes' GeoVision® dataset is an enhanced version of PSMA’s Geoscape® product, especially designed to simplify and enhance the experience of using this nationally important new dataset.

Geoscape is Australia’s only nationwide representation of the built environment. GeoVision provides a complete picture of every building at an unprecedented level of accuracy and detail including building height and roofing information. Details of land cover and trees as well as presence of solar panels and swimming pools mean that GeoVision will be an absolutely invaluable data resource for many sectors.

GeoVision will be available and maintained not only for urban areas but all regional, rural and remote areas within Australia.
