What's new in MapVision

MapVision is constantly being developed to meet the requirements of our users, whether this is a feature we think you'll find useful, or in response to user feedback. We strive to fit as many GIS tools into the program as we can whilst keeping it lean enough to work in a web browser and intuitive enough for any user.

The below list gives a run down of the latest changes that might benefit your projects so it is worth checking back regularly to see what is new. As a web-based tool, there will never be any downloads or updates required, but make sure that each time you use MapVision you conduct a "hard refresh" (Control + F5 in most browsers) to make sure that you benefit from the latest features.

Follow the hashtag #MapVision on Twitter to find out about new features as they are released.
