About Data Usage Calculation

Your data usage is measured in bytes of Nearmap proprietary aerial imagery viewed.

These activities do consume data:

  • Viewing a site, zooming in, panning around
  • Selecting a date to view from the date dropdown box 
  • Consuming Nearmap imagery via an integration such as WMS, ArcGIS Online, TMS, APIs and KML (Google Super-overlay)
  • Solar reports (typically less than 1MB per report)

These activities don't consume data:

How Much Data Will I Consume?

A typical virtual site visit consumes about three megabytes of data on a high resolution monitor.

Data allowance

Virtual site visits

250MB per month

Up to 20 per week

1 GB per month

Up to 80 per week

4 GB per month

Up to 320 per week

10 GB per month

Up to 800 per week

25 GB per month

Up to 2000 per week

Screen Resolution and Data Consumption

The larger your monitor, the more data you use at each step. With a screen resolution of 1024x768 you'll typically consume less than a megabyte per virtual site visit. On a larger HD screen (1920x1080 pixels) you’ll typically consume three megabytes per site visit.

You can reduce your data usage on a large screen by not running your web browser at full screen size.
