Site Planner is a new feature designed to help you annotate Nearmap imagery and undertake site planning by adding scaled objects to Nearmap. These scaled images are the actual size of real world objects. This can help when planning construction work, a special event, or where to place your new pool.
This feature is currently in development and will be improved and expanded over coming months. It is only available on certain subscriptions. If you have specific improvements or items you would like added, please contact us via the Email Us link.
Add an object
Simply find the object you wish to add in the Site Planner Object tool then click on the object once. The object will appear at the centre of the map.
If you zoom in or out, the object will scale to match a real-world object as if it were placed on the map.
The objects you add will remain on the map until you delete them, refresh the browser, or log out.
To copy an object, use Ctrl-C on Windows or Command-C on a Mac. To paste an object, use Ctrl-V on Windows and Command-V on a Mac.
Basic objects, such as adjustable polygons and text boxes, can be used to represent a variety of objects not otherwise found in the library. To label a text box, just double-click it once placed on the map. Unlike other objects, text box size does not change as you zoom in or out of the map.
Move an object
To move an object, just click-and-drag to place the image at the desired location.
Rotate an object
To rotate an object, select the image, then go to the Object Properties section of the Site Planner tool.
Specify the rotation offset by entering the desired degree of rotation in theRotate box.
Resize an object
Currently, only the polygon shapes are resizable. Simply click one of the shape's anchor points and drag to resize.
