RapidPlan now integrates with the MetroMap (formerly Spookfish Australia*) API. RapidPlan customers can now access MetroMap resources directly from the software, via their MetroMap Enterprise Plan subscription.

MetroMap is one of the leading providers of up-to-date, very high resolution aerial imagery. This, as well as a host of other recent mapping integrations, has reinforced Invarion’s commitment to providing RapidPlan customers access to the most current, high resolution aerial imagery services available – from within our software.

How can I access MetroMap as a map provider in RapidPlan?

Presuming you already have a current Enterprise Plan subscription with MetroMap, the first step is to include them as an option on your basemap providers list. To do this, navigate to the Properties palette. Under “Basemap”, select the click-down menu next to “Provider”. At the bottom of the menu, choose “More providers”.

In the dialogue box that appears, check the box next to MetroMap, then click “Save”.

This option will now display in the click-down menu. Again, navigate to the Provider menu and select MetroMap. A dialogue box will then appear asking for your MetroMap username and password (or API key). After entering these details, click “Save”.

Imagery provided by MetroMap will now display on the background in your canvas area.
