The Panorama and Oblique Imagery guide includes the following sections:

Overview

Nearmap Panorama and Nearmap Oblique provide a 45-degree angle view of a location. 

Accessing Panorama and Oblique imagery

For all customers, Panorama and Oblique imagery are available in the New MapBrowser, with specific Nearmap subscription offerings.
 
For customers in Australia Panorama imagery is also available in MapBrowser Classic.
 
You can access the New MapBrowser easily from MapBrowser Classic. Simply click on the account menu and select Go to New MapBrowser”.
 

A new browser tab will launch and you will be shown the imagery for the location you were browsing previously, at the same zoom level.

Nearmap Panorama Imagery

Nearmap Panorama imagery offers a 45-degree angle view of a location. Similar to our Vertical imagery, you can continuously pan around an area of interest and zoom in for more detail.
 
You can view Panorama imagery for each cardinal direction of the location using the compass tool.


Viewing Panorama Imagery

Use the Compass tool to switch to Panorama imagery, in the following ways:

  1. Compass list, or
  2. Cardinal directions

1. Compass list

In the New MapBrowser select the drop down list above the compass and select 'Panorama':

US                                       AU                                       


Note: The AU version of the compass includes the Terrain option.

In MapBrowser Classic to view panorama imagery, select the Panorama option from the view mode: 

Note: Panorama in MapBrowser Classic is available for AU customers only.

2. Cardinal Directions on Compass

Click on any of the cardinal directions on the compass to quickly switch to a North, South, East or West Panorama for the current location.

Note: For US customers Panorama imagery is only available in the New MapBrowser.

Height and Width Cannot be Measured from Panorama Imagery

Nearmap adjusts photos in order to provide a coherent continuous Panorama. These adjustments make the Panorama unsuited to measure height accurately. Different adjustments are made across a photo, and so there is not a single adjustment to a measurement that can be made to make it more accurate.

For this reason, the measurement tool is not available in Panorama.


Note: Location, drawing and import tools are not supported for Panoramas in MapBrowser Classic, and we advise customers not to use them. In MapBrowser Classic, any elements positioned on the screen in a Panorama view may not appear, or may appear at a different location, if you switch to a different view. This is only relevant for Australian customers – for US customers Panorama imagery is only available in the New MapBrowser. We advise all customers to view Panoramas in the New MapBrowser.

Nearmap Oblique Imagery

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 a continuous, blended vertical imagery.

Since Nearmap Obliques are unaltered, they allow the user to measure the height and width of objects and buildings, as well as 3D lines, and 3D areas.

You can view Oblique imagery for each cardinal direction of the location using the compass tool.

Note: Oblique imagery is only available in the New MapBrowser.


Viewing Oblique Imagery

There are two ways to view Oblique photos in MapBrowser:

  1. Location information, or
  2. Compass tool

1. Location information

Simply search for a location or drop a location pin. If Oblique photos are available for that location, the View Oblique Photos’ button will be enabled. Click on this button to view the Oblique photos for this location:


2. Compass list 

Select the drop down list and select 'Oblique':



Please refer to the Height and Width Tools section to learn how to measure height and width using oblique imagery.

Please refer to the 3D Line Tool and 3D Area Tool to learn how to perform 3D measurements using oblique imagery.
