It’s been a few months since our last update, but that doesn’t mean that we’ve not been busy. Prover users will notice the new map-centric “Search” tab that appeared earlier this year, which is a stopgap solution while we finish work in the background on the new web based software.
On Quickmap, we have updated the Place name search and the names on the map with the latest data from the New Zealand Gazetteer. This update also adds a hyperlink in the Info window that takes you to the official LINZ Gazetteer website where you can get additional information about the feature. E.g. https://gazetteer.linz.govt.nz/place/50435
Note: Not all names on the map have been captured by LINZ in the New Zealand Gazetteer, so not all names will have the hyperlink option for viewing additional information.
