What you should know about Hi-res Imagery for Solar Design

READ THIS: Before you buy Hi-res Imagery for Solar Design

Hi-res imagery is important for solar consultants because it allows you to work remotely to create a solar system and assess shading. The better your imagery is, the better the quality of your solar system will be.

Most solar design software use hi-res imagery, but one size does not fit all.

Imagery is usually graded like this:

  • Low res imagery (Google Earth, 1m per pixel)
  • Medium-res imagery (30cm per pixel)
  • Hi-res Imagery (15cm per pixel)
  • Ultra hi-res imagery (5.5-7.5cm per pixel) - Pylon

The quality of your imagery dictates the accuracy of your design.

With ultra hi-res imagery like what you find in Pylon, you can see a leaf on a rooftop. This level of granularity makes measurements precise.

In Australia, Pylon has 90% coverage of ultra hi-res imagery, and 80% coverage in the USA.
