Over the past month, we've made a number of improvements to MapBrowser. Read on for more details!


It's now easier to work with layers

  • Duplicating a layer will show a confirmation message before creating the layer
  • The Text annotation layer name will automatically reflect the annotation text
  • KML layer names no longer say ‘Imported file’
  • Layers will be automatically named e.g. ‘Line 1, Line 2…’
  • It’s now easier to draw over the top of an existing feature layer

Measurement tools

  • Lines now indicate the bearing using an arrow
  • The radius of a circle will be displayed on the map

Keyboard shortcuts

Upcoming enhancements

  • Nearmap 3D and Nearmap AI users will soon be able to name exports, so keep an eye out for an upcoming announcement.
