The previously mentioned NYCityMap interface changes are now live. These changes reflect usability improvements and address feedback received. The result is the preservation of existing functionality while streamlining the user interface. The changes are:
Addition of an Advanced tool. Within this are the previous tools that existed over the base map.
Replacing the slider with Map Type tool. Many users were confused by the slider and the ability to toggle between a cartographic map (Map) and the numerous years of aerial photography. All of these base maps still exist but are are now within the Map Type tool. The base map selected is shown by a check next to the entry.
