Nearmap Oblique imagery provides a 45-degree angle view of a location. Oblique imagery differs from Panorama in that you view individual photos of an area, rather than continuous, blended Vertical imagery.
NOTE: Oblique content is also available as individual photos, each taken from a different cardinal direction, ordinal direction, or occasionally both. Whether you see cardinal (North, South, East or West) or ordinal (North-East, South-West, South-East, North-West) photos depends on the orientation the survey flight took.
For more details and technical information, see Nearmap Oblique.
Viewing Oblique imagery
There are two ways to access Oblique imagery:
Select Oblique from the Base Layer picker.
- In the Vertical view, simply search for a location or drop a location marker. If Oblique photos are available for that location, click VIEW OBLIQUE PHOTOS in the Inspector panel.
NOTE: Nearmap's Oblique imagery provides an easy way to accurately measure areas, heights and slopes. However, it is recommended that you exercise caution when using the scale bar as it's only approximate, not exact. Find out more: Measure Obliques.
Selecting an individual photo
Select additional photos for a particular direction using the Additional Photos button next to the Base layer picker. To view and choose photos for a different direction, use the Direction button or use the rotate button, and then select the photos you want to see.
