This tutorial series is more than just an orientation to Nearmap on OpenSolar.
It is designed to walk you through setting up Nearmap on OpenSolar to work for your business, from logging in through to establishing up your company details and setting up your project defaults. We'll show you how to design solar systems for your customers using standard vertical (top-down) imagery, Oblique imagery and even 3D content. You'll discover how to measure roof slope and azimuth and analyze shading. And we'll take you through designing your customer's proposal to deliver online or as PDF.
Each module is available here as a video and as written instruction. Choose either or both – whatever suits you best. You can go back over the modules as slowly as you need to, whenever you need to.
When you've completed the series, we invite you to fill in our online training feedback survey. This will help us improve our training so we can better help you in the future.
