Features


Simplified Layout


The new MapBrowser layout has been designed with a clean and simple user interface which lets you make the most of Nearmap’s imagery.
 


 
 

Optimized for all Devices


The new MapBrowser has been designed with a responsive layout, which means it will work on all types of devices and screen sizes  desktop, laptop, mobile and tablet.
On smaller screens, such as mobile, some features are accessed via the side menu in order to save space.
 


 
 
 

Search for a Location


You can search for a location using a street address, suburb or point of interest.
 
Search using geographic coordinates 
You can also search using the latitude and longitude of a location.

The compass tool lets you easily switch your base layer imagery.

Measure the length of an object or path using the line tool. Measure the area of an object or space, or find the radius using the measurement tools.
 

 
  
 Display or hide measurement labels
 
 
 
 
 

Save Map

You can easily save a copy of the imagery base layer that you are viewing.

Open the menu and click on 'Save Map'. The image you see in your browser window will be saved to your computer as a .PNG file.


 

 

Save Map with measurements

You can now save a copy of the map with any measurements that you've made included in the image.

Go to 'Save Map' in the menu and ensure 'Include Map Objects' is selected.


 
If you have measurements on the map, and wish to print the image without including the measurements, simply uncheck the 'Include Map Objects' option and click 'Save'.   
 

Locate Me


You can now see your location on our Nearmap imagery, which is great for visualising where you are in relation to historical imagery while you’re out in the field.
 


 

 
For this feature to work, you will need to allow access to use your location. If you click Don’t Allow’, this feature will not be enabled. 
 
 

Rotating the Map View


To rotate imagery, hold down the alt’ key while dragging the mouse. On touch screen devices, simplyspin’ the map using your thumb and forefingers.
Clicking on the centre of the compass will reset the image back to North. 
 
 

Continuous Zoom


You can zoom in easily using your mouse or trackpad on your computer, or using pinch & zoom on a touch screen device.

Continuous zoom makes the zooming experience smooth. You’ll notice the difference to the discrete zoom levels in MapBrowser Classic.
