LandVision Help > Documentation > TimeView Satellite Imagery

The TimeView tool in LandVision enables you to view the most up to date Satellite imagery available in your area. This feature also allows you to access historical satellite imagery that appears right on your map with the click of a mouse.

TimeView is available as an add-on to any LandVision Enterprise, Commercial or Builder edition account. For pricing and more information, visit our Request TimeView Information page or contact your account manager.

Using TimeView in LandVision

  1. The TimeView icon can be found on the toolbar at the top of the application on the menu bar.

  2. To see the available imagery for your current map view click on the Time View icon . This will open a panel with a list of dates that you can select from. These dates are the capture dates for the corresponding satellite imagery.

    Note: For performance and scalability reasons, Time View automatically turns off when you've zoomed so far out that it would be of negligible value. Zoom in to enable Time View imagery.

  3. Click on the radio button next to the date, to view the corresponding satellite imagery on your map.

  4. Tip: Satellite photography captures a limited area at a time so the imagery available varies based on the area you are viewing. Moving the map may cause different dates to become available.

    Note: You can select only one date at a time.

  5. To view a different date simply click another one from the list to have the corresponding satellite imagery appear.

    Note: TimeView imagery is fully compatible with other layers.

TimeView Considerations
  • TimeView imagery is satellite imagery, which is different from aerial imagery. The resolution will generally be less than the base map aerial imagery and will look less refined due to fewer post-processing procedures. Its primary benefits are its currency and frequency.

  • TimeView also differs from aerial imagery in that it is not contiguous for a given area. It is captured in strips. As you turn on a given satellite image, you may run into the edge of the image. This is normal and expected. If you encounter an edge of an image, simply refresh your TimeView available list and select another image set from a similar timeframe.
