HIGHLIGHT TOOL LAUNCH
July 19, 2021
What is the highlight tool?
We have now launched our new tool called ''Highlight'', a feature designed for property professionals looking to analyse and explore a chosen area. It is now possible to view and research the water features, green spaces, urban growth and transport characteristics of a given site, and synthesise these analyses into visual information in the form of a PNG image.
Where is it?
The highlight tool is situated on the top toolbar of MapServe. You simply need to log in to your account and choose your area using the search engine.
How do I use it?
You can use the Highlight tool on Mastermap, aerial photography, or the overview map depending on your project. Simply choose the radius you would like to cover around your property and click on the features that you would like to explore. You are able to view the file on MapServe before exporting it in PNG format.
What does it include?
It includes multiple features including Buildings and Infrastructure, Transport links, Land and Water features.
