- To print from Nearmap, click the Print icon from the Nearmap toolbar.
Use this tool if you would like to print your current window. The area you're looking at in the browser will auto-fit to the page you print, so if you want to maximise the size of the image on the printed page, make sure the aspect ratio of your browser window (height vs. width) matches that of the page you want to print. So if you're printing in portrait, make your browser taller than it is wide, and if printing in landscape, make the browser wider than it is tall.
You can print basic aerial imagery (without any overlays or markers) using Export > Print from the MapBrowser toolbar.

Using the Print functionality from the Export feature in the MapBrowser
To print from the MapBrowser:
- From the Toolbar, select Export.
- Select Print.
- In the Notes field, enter any notes you'd like to include in your printout.
- In the top-right corner of the screen, click Print.
Your browser's Print interface opens, and you can configure your printout options.
Working around the Nearmap print limitations
Currently, the Export > Print tool only prints the basic vertical aerials of our PhotoMap imagery. Overlays, markers and other map views won't be included. We hope to include more functionality in our printed output in the future.
To work around these limitations for now, there are two options:
- Instead of using the Nearmap Print feature from the Export tool, use the built-in Print functionality in Firefox or Internet Explorer. These browsers give the best results if you're trying to include overlays in your printed output. The output from Chrome tends not to give good results.
- Use your computer's Print Screen tool to take a screen capture of the Nearmap MapBrowser window while your overlays, markers or preferred views are displayed. You can then save or print the screen capture.
Here's a website that explains how to take a screen capture in Windows or Mac OS: Take-a-Screenshot.org. Please note that the website isn't associated with Nearmap, and we can't guarantee its content.
