"Outline map: old and recent." from simon3 Contract pics
Picture: Outline map: old and recent. (Contract pics)

Island and other changes.
Context of comment:Maps shown by MountainViews, particularly the "Outline" map.
Message:You may be wondering what happened to the Overview map. Suddenly it has sprouted circles off the coast. The area markers look moth-eaten.

One purpose of the "Overview" map is to allow you to use one click to move the "Detail" map to a particular area of the island of Ireland and view the places there.

The circles are to help you move to the coastal areas which contain islands, coastal hills and other coastal features.

The moth-eaten summit areas now show more accurately where the summits are. Previously these were represented by a shape whose boundary never turned inward. The new outlines are more accurate and overlap less often.

There's various other detail changes. Hovering over a place on the detail map will now show you what lists the given place are in.

For those interested in modern map tech, the new area outlines are "Concave Hull" replacing the "Convex Hulls" we had before.
Additional points:As with all changes, inevitably there are going to be bugs, irritations and suggestions for improvement.
