- At Nearmap, we view the world in many ways, from top-down to 3D to colorized raster layers, and lots of things in between. Your subscription might include just one type of content, or many. Whatever the case, here’s a quick overview of the different types of Nearmap content and how you can work with them.
Nearmap Vertical is our flagship high resolution orthogonal imagery. It provides you with a top-down view of the world, stitched together into a seamless map to allow you to easily pan and zoom around your area of interest. With industry-leading resolution 5.6cm (or 2.2"), Nearmap Vertical lets you perform detailed analysis of your project area or property features, including accurate measurements.
You can use Nearmap Vertical in MapBrowser or work with it inside popular third-party GIS and CAD platforms. You can also integrate Nearmap Vertical with your own bespoke solutions using our range of APIs. LEARN MORE
Nearmap Panorama imagery offers a 45-degree angle view of a location and is great for prospecting and canvassing across a large area. Like Nearmap Vertical, Panorama lets you continuously pan around and zoom in to get a contextual understanding of your area of interest. Panorama imagery can be viewed from each cardinal direction in MapBrowser using the compass tool. While Panorama is viewable in MapBrowser, use Nearmap Oblique to derive accurate measurements. Nearmap also provides access to its Vertical and Panorama Imagery via the Tile API.
Nearmap Oblique is a premium content consisting of individual original photos, taken at 45 degrees. It gives you additional perspective to view the sides of a building, for example, which may be obstructed in a top-down image. Unlike Nearmap Panorama, Nearmap Oblique is great for measuring the heights and widths of objects and buildings, as well as slopes and areas of roofs.
You can access Nearmap Oblique from MapBrowser and also through the Esri Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS. LEARN MORE
Nearmap 3D is a suite of advanced content types that adds new dimensions to your virtual site inspections, feasibility studies, and design workflows. From architectural visualization and scenario modelling to wireless network planning — Nearmap 3D provides you with instant access to frequently updated location content in various formats:
- Textured Mesh (.slpk, .3mx, .obj. .fbx. cesium 3D tiles)
- Point Cloud (.las, .laz)
- True Ortho (GeoTIFF, .jpeg)
- Digital Surface Model (DSM) (GeoTIFF, .ASCII)
- Digital Terrain Model (DTM) or Digital Elevation Model (DEM) (GeoTIFF, .ASCII)
Our photorealistic Textured Mesh can be streamed directly in MapBrowser with 3D Viewer. Alternatively, all Nearmap 3D content can be exported in a few clicks from MapBrowser for detailed analysis and design in leading GIS and design platforms. No APIs are available at this stage for Nearmap 3D. LEARN MORE
Nearmap AI is the latest suite of property insight layers available to organizations that subscribe to the relevant Nearmap AI packs. Derived from our high resolution imagery, Nearmap AI enables you to pull out the data you need to make critical business decisions. Paired with our rich historic catalogue of Nearmap Vertical imagery, you can verify data against the source imagery while automating insight-gathering at scale to save hours in your day.
Nearmap AI can be viewed as AI Layers in MapBrowser, or exported as datasets for integration with your in-house applications and workflows. LEARN MORE
