Improvements to Map Layers for Rural Properties

In our Mapping Update last October, we made some changes that allowed some layers to remain on at higher zoom levels – a key requirement for people in rural areas, where there’s large parcels of land.

We’ve been tweaking this functionality to better suit the needs of agents when researching rural properties, and are pleased to let you know about the following enhancements to layer visibility:

  • We’re smarter with displaying Land Area. You’ll notice for larger blocks, displayed the size as Hectares
  • Property Data layers were only available to the 200m zoom level, these layers are visible on larger blocks all the way out to 2km:
    • Last Sale Price & Date
    • Lot Plan
    • Land Use
    • Street Number
  • Sales & Listing theme layers have also changed, previously only visible to 200m zoom – now available at 500m

 

The changes are available right now in RP Data Professional, for Google Aerial, CoreLogic Aerial and Road Map views. Don’t forget if you need to zoom out further, switch to Google Aerial or the Road Map view.
