What is data usage based on?
For imagery usage your data usage is measured in bytes of Nearmap proprietary aerial imagery viewed.
For AI parcel data your usage is measured in numbers of parcels downloaded.
What consumes data?
Consuming Nearmap imagery via an integration
Integrations such as WMS, ArcGIS Online, Tile API and KML (Google Super-overlay)
The DSM API - consumes by transaction.
Consuming data on different Nearmap platforms
- Once you are zoomed out below 14, no data is consumed, no matter how much panning or how big your screen is.
- The bigger your monitor, the more tiles you can fit in view and therefore the more data you will consume.
But once you are zoomed out below 14, no matter how much panning or how big your screen is, we won't count data.
2D usage still applies if you are viewing a roads or streets layer on top of your Nearmap imagery.
What does not consume data?
In MapBrowser you access Roads Overlay from the Data Layers panel on the left.
- Exporting 2D imagery
- Viewing 3D content
- Leaving the Nearmap browser open
- Panning over the world map at low resolution
- Zooming and panning over an area that is not covered by Nearmap aerial imagery
The area you're viewing has no Nearmap coverage when:
- A dialog at the bottom of MapBrowser tells you there is no coverage
Viewing Roads or Roadmaps
In MapBrowser - by selecting Roads as your view type from the Base Layer picker.
