Map viewer upgrade

The map viewer has just been updated. This update includes some minor changes to the site along with a new tool and new basemap options.


What are the new features?

The two main features that have been added are new basemap options and a new tool: add local data.


Add local data tool

The add local data tool allows you to add shapefiles, GPX files and CSV files to the map. While this is very similar to the add data tool, the add local data tool offers more functionality when adding csv files to the map.

New basemap options

These new basemaps are the first vector basemaps to be added to Canterbury Maps. Vector basemaps are a new technology that have many benefits.

There are three new basemap options for you to choose from:

  • Colour Streets
  • Light Grey
  • Dark Grey
