Ben Riches, owner of Cowes-based ArbAdvice, said: "The Bluesky aerial photographs are an essential tool, allowing us to identify and assess trees in their real world context.

"This reduces the need for multiple site visits, improves the quality of decision making, and allows us to effectively communicate plans and proposals with property owners, the Council and third parties such as insurance companies."

These are available from Bluesky's online Mapshop, which offers complete nationwide coverage of aerial photography from multiple epochs, 3D models, LiDAR data, thermal mapping as well as Bluesky's National Tree Map.

The site also offers free geological, land cover and flood maps, as well as places of interest, census areas and collections of themed data such as farming, marine and habitats.
