It is easy to access Nearmap imagery through Google Earth® or Google Earth Pro®.

Please note that at this time, only the most recent image capture is available for a given location.

With most subscriptions, it is not possible to be logged in to both the online MapBrowser and Google Earth at the same time. If you do, you will need to close both packages in order to access Nearmap through Google Earth again. If you find that Google Earth is not accepting your login credentials, please make sure that you have followed Step 3.

  1. Keep Google Earth from storing cookies:

    1. In Google Earth, go to the Options menu.

    2. Switch to the General tab.

    3. Uncheck the Save cookies to disk box and click OK.

  2. From the Add menu, select Network Link.

  3. In the Network Link window, at the Name field, enter Nearmap. At the Link field, enter  and click OK.

  4. When prompted, enter your Nearmap User Name and Password, and click Sign In.

  5. Verify that Nearmap logo appears (1) and the node with the name of the network link from Step 3 has a green dot (2).

You cannot access previous captures in Google Earth. Since low zoom levels may include imagery from many dates, zoom in close to a location of interest to be sure that you're seeing the appropriate date for its capture.


Google Earth not accepting Nearmap login

This section should help if you try to login using correct Nearmap credentials in Google Earth, but the login window keeps appearing whatever you type, even if you click Cancel.
This can happen if Step 3 of our Google Earth integration instructions was missed. If Google Earth saves your validated credentials to disk, it will try to use the same saved Nearmap authentication cookie every time you try to log in. That may be fine if you haven't logged in elsewhere. However, if you have used the MapBrowser more recently, the original cookie becomes invalid but Google Earth tries to use it anyway.

The solution for now is to keep Google Earth from storing that cookie:

On Windows

  1. Find Google Earth's cookies file on your hard drive. It is typically at "C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\AppData\LocalLow\Google\GoogleEarth\cookies" where YOUR_USERNAME is your Windows username.

  2. Delete this file.

  3. Follow all steps of the Google Earth integration instructions above.

Delete Google Earth cache

If you are still experiencing issues logging in or accessing imagery, try clearing the Google Earth cache. Follow these steps:

  1. In Google Earth select File > Server Sign Out.
  2. Select Tools > Options and on the Cache tab.
  3. Press Delete cache file.

  4. Select File > Server Sign In or restart Google Earth.
