The Export tool allows you to save an image from MapBrowser or export an image to be used in other applications. 

There are three ways to save or export our imagery from MapBrowser:

Each of the export options is described in the following sections.

Export Screenshot

Click the Export tool and select Screenshot from the drop-down menu:

This option captures the entire map view, and provides a screenshot with or without measurements and annotations. When you click Download Image, the file is saved locally to your computer as .png. 

Select Include Map Objects to save a copy of the map with the measurements and annotations.

You can use the screenshot option for all imagery layers, i.e. Vertical, Panorama, Oblique, and Roads. Also Terrain for AU customers. 

Exporting a screenshot is very useful for sharing an image quickly with others via email, or for use in presentations.

Note: The exported screenshot includes the survey date at the bottom left-hand corner. The survey date may differ from the actual capture date of the image, as explained in Survey Date and Photo Time.

Export High Resolution Image

Click the Export tool and select High resolution image from the drop-down menu:

Select an area you would like to export, and choose the resolution you want for the exported image. When you click Download Image, the file is saved locally to your computer as .jpg. 

You can use the high resolution option for Vertical imagery only.

Notes: 

  • Annotations and measurements are not included in the exported high resolution image. 
  • Rotated imagery cannot be exported in high resolution, instead the imagery is exported in its original orientation. 

Exporting a high resolution image is very useful when you need a high quality image export, for example for printing imagery.

Export Georeferenced Image

Click the Export tool and select Georeferenced image from the drop-down menu:

Choose the relevant projection for your project, and the resolution you want for the exported image. When you click Download Files, the image file and the georeference file are saved locally to your computer as zip file,  the image file is saved as .jpg, and the georeference file is saved as .jgw.

You can use the georeferenced image option for Vertical imagery only.

Notes: 

  • Annotations and measurements are not included in the exported georeferenced image. 
  • Rotated georeferenced imagery cannot be exported, instead the georeferenced imagery is exported in its original orientation. 

Exporting georeferenced files is very useful when you want to export an image for use in third-party applications, such as ArcGIS and CAD.
