Google Earth - KML integration

Last Updated: Mar 16, 2015 06:43PM AEDT

Integrating nearmap imagery into Google Earth


It's 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. 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. If you don't do this, you may lose the ability to access nearmap via Google Earth as soon as you next login to the MapBrowser. If that happens, you will need to manually delete Google Earth's "cookies" file and restart Google Earth. On Windows 7, this is usually found at: "C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\AppData\LocalLow\Google\GoogleEarth\cookies"


  4. Select Network Link from the Add menu.


  5. In the Network Link page, enter in the Link field and press Enter.

  6. You'll be prompted to enter your nearmap User Name and Password. Just enter them and click Sign In.


  7. You should now see nearmap appear as a layer. The imagery shown for a given location is the most recent nearmap image available for that location; previous captures cannot currently be accessed 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.


  8. Most Google Earth features should be compatible with the high-resolution nearmap imagery.
