This guide includes the following sections:
Getting Started - Using the Layer Manger
You can see the Layer Manager by clicking the extension tab on the left of your screen. Any measurements or text annotations that you add to your imagery will appear under your Workspace (or project).
Clicking the Ellipsis button in the ARCHIVED tab displays the following options:
Creating a New Project
There are two ways to create a new project:
Adding Labels to a Project
Opening a Project
Duplicating a Project
You can duplicate an open or closed project if you need to make additional changes to the original project. Select the project to be duplicated, click the Ellipsis button and from the menu displayed select Duplicate.
By default, a duplicated project is created with the same name as the original, but with (copy) appended to it. When you duplicate a project, all labels added to the original project are copied over. If you cancel the operation while duplication is in progress, it may result in errors in the duplicated project.
Renaming a Project
To rename a project, double-click the project name. Type the new name and press Enter.
Alternatively, click the context menu and select Rename.
You can rename a project in both the MY PROJECTS and ARCHIVED tabs.
Saving a Project
There are two ways you can locate your current or archived projects:
In the search bar enter any text contained in the project name or any label.
By default projects are sorted by Last Opened project. Click this dropdown to select a different parameter by which to sort your Projects. You can sort by:
- Last opened (project)
- Date Created
- Project Name (A-Z) Note that numerics precede A-Z.
Archiving and Deleting Projects
To clear a workspace that you do not want, click the Ellipsis button and select Clear from the menu.

How many layers can I create in a Project? —
At this stage, there are no limits to how many layers you can create in a project.
How do I move an object to another layer in MapBrowser? —
You can move an individual object to an existing layer by dragging the object from one layer to another. You can easily move single or multiple objects to a new layer by highlighting the objects and selecting ‘Add selected features to new layer’ from the layers menu (press Shift + Click to select multiple).
Why are there markings on the map and how do I remove them? —
Markings on the map are most likely measurements and annotations that you may have accidentally placed, forgotten you'd placed, or that someone who shares your Nearmap profile has placed.
The articles in these sections show you how to add measurements and annotations, as well as how to group, hide, delete them, and more.
Are my 3D lines and measurements saved in projects? —
