The MultiVision oblique photography provided by Getmapping Plc, shows aerial views of Thurrock from four different orientations with a 3D perspective. This added information will assist the TTGDC in producing master plans and development guides for key areas and sites. It will also be used as a tool in demonstrating proposed plans and planning applications to residents and other stakeholders.

Presented with MultiVision oblique photography they can recognise the road or area in which they live. This personalises our proposed developments for them, giving greater relevance to our plans.”
