We are putting the finishing touches on the next Geopointe update (“v3”) and it’s going to be a big one. We are rebuilding the Map page to provide much better performance and a much improved user experience. This is part one in a two-part overhaul of the Map page. The most noticeable improvements are:
- Tabbed UI puts the map front and center
- 10x search performance improvement
- 8x query limit improvement
- 4x more options in the Color By palette
- Right-Click map actions
- Super fast ability to relocate the Map
- Easy management of “My Locations”
- Quicker access to Help
