You can use the following tools to measure Nearmap's 3D imagery:
- While in 3D, select the location tool.
- Click on a location in the map. When you access the Location tool you will see a disk that follows the surface.
Once you drop the pin onto the terrain, a balloon appears about 5m at true vertical above the pin.
What you need to know about the location pin:
- A pin placed in the open will result in a flag raised to about 5m above the surface. This may be the ground, or any other open surface, such as a car park rooftop.
- A pin placed near a object like a building will result in the flag being raised above the height of that object, so that the flag can be visible from multiple directions.
- In all cases the elevation returned is the point that the user clicks on the surface (the 'pin').
The displayed information includes:
- The address of the location, if any.
- The latitude and longitude of the location in two modes: decimal, e.g. -33.694841, 150.317237, and degrees/minutes/seconds, e.g. -33°41'41", 150°19'2".
- WATCH button, which you can use to add the location to your watchlist. Please refer to Managing Your Watchlist for more information.
- If there are oblique photos for the location, you can click VIEW OBLIQUE PHOTOS, as explained in Panorama and Oblique Imagery.
With the 3D location pin you see the elevation value relative to mean sea level.
3. Select the units from the dropdown to display your units of choice.
Removing the location pin
To remove a pin, click it to select it, then click the trash icon or press the Delete key on your keyboard.

You can measure lines in 3D using the Line tool.
Zoom into the property you want to measure, then draw a line along the slope you want to measure.
When you access the Line tool you will see a disk that
The measurements include:
- Line length - the distance between the both ends of the line in meters, kilometers, feet, yards, miles, or nautical miles.
- Pitch - the angle of the line relative to the horizon in degrees or rise/run ratio.
- Relative height - the difference in height between both ends of the line in meters, kilometers, feet, yards, miles, or nautical miles.
You can choose the colour of the line.
Once you are done, you can zoom in and out, pan, and tilt, and the line will still be there.
