My Account is not set up to use API Key. What do I do now?
In order to access Nearmap imagery with an API key, you must first set up an API application. Only Nearmap Administrators can set up API applications, so if you are not an administrator, you'll need to ask your administrator to do this for you. Once there is an API application, you can set up your own API key within it.…
Can I request the DSM and True Ortho image and have the API return an image using the best possible resolution?
The physical and pixel size of the image are deliberately explicit to give you control over the image that will be returned. This is further complicated by the fact that True Ortho and DSM are of different native resolutions (0.055 m versus 0.15 m). Request the imagery by inspecting the coverage response and then…

I want to retrieve imagery for an area larger than 100 metres. Can I do this with the DSM API?
To do this, you will need to make multiple coverage calls (i.e. with a Transaction Token for each), make the image calls and stitch together the images. Find out more here: DSM and True Ortho API
If we create many areas, does it have a performance impact?
The performance impact is not so much dependent on the size of the area, but on the number of surveys you bring back. There is a limit on how big an individual area can be, currently set at about 5000 km2, and you can specify up to ten areas in the same service. If you bring in ten metropolitan areas around Australia, you…
What do I need to access the AI Feature API?
