The default map type view in the Widget is the Vertical view, which lets you see Nearmap vertical aerial photography. To access this view, select Vertical in the Base Layer picker.
Nearmap Vertical imagery has been orthorectified; that is, it has been transformed in such a way that each point on the map looks like it was photographed from directly above it. Orthorectification makes vertical aerial imagery suitable for use as a map and allows georeferencing. Panorama
Panorama imagery offers a 45-degree angle view of a location. Similar to Vertical imagery, you can continuously pan around an area of interest and zoom in for more detail.
- To access this view, select Panorama in the Base Layer picker.
- Click the Direction navigation tool to switch to cardinal directions North, South, East or West Panorama for the current location.
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. You can select an individual photo from the Photos panel that is displayed in the bottom left.
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.
The Roads view shows you a schematic of roads instead of aerial imagery. Select Roads from the Base Layer picker.
NOTE: As with all street maps, occasionally the information shown may be outdated or incorrect. The address data in the Roadmap view and Street Maps overlay are provided by Here Map Creator. Nearmap has no ability to edit them, so you would have to notify the provider directly.True Ortho
Regular orthographic images have building lean which combined with parallax error can result in features being blocked and invisible. This can lead to inaccurate estimations or measurements. True Ortho eliminates all parallax distortion which allows for accurate horizontal measurement. True Ortho is only available to 3D Viewer users.
To access this view, select True Ortho from the Base Layer picker. 3D
You can view Nearmap 3D content in Cesium format in the Widget.
To view 3D, you need a specific Nearmap subscription. Contact your Nearmap Account manager to enable this option. Once you have a 3D subscription, select 3D from the Base Layer picker. Viewing and measuring 3D content do not count towards your standard imagery data allowance.
Each 3D capture is made up of multiple surveys, flown at different dates. The capture name at the bottom of the screen consists of the region of the capture and the month and year of the first survey in the capture. The entire scene could be made up of photos taken over one to three months.
