New Roll Out: All About Mapping Performance and Sharing Enhancements

Improved Mapping Performance

There’s mapping and there’s Mapline mapping. The difference? Performance! We believe that with better mapping performance comes better results and faster analysis. So we are proud to announce that for the new roll out, our users will be able to have faster mapping experience. Try it out now and speed up your data analysis!

Sharing Enhancements

Another equally important roll out is the enhancement in map sharing option.

First, users to whom the maps that are shared with edit permissions can no longer delete a map. Instead, the owner of the map or the administrator can just un-share the map with them. When a user is trying to delete a map, a message prompt will appear:

sharing option 8

Second, when sharing a map with a user’s dataset, a message prompt will appear asking the owner of the map if the datasets should be shared as well:

sharing option 7

Third, a shared map can only be duplicated when it is shared to someone with edit permission.

In the 2nd quarter of 2017, with Mapline giving you the best mapping experience and the best value for money, don’t be just mapping ready. Be Mapline ready!
