New and improved: Participant likes 

If your campaign presents responses publicly, the app now lets participants 'like' other responses. This helps to avoid duplication and gives you a view on popular ideas.

New and improved: Interactive legends for all proposal maps

Map consultations now automatically include an interactive legend based on the proposals and themes included in your campaign.


New feature: Add keyword labels on responses for easier analysis

The consultation reporting dashboard just got a whole lot more powerful. You can now add topic keywords on each response you receive to speed up the analysis. It's particularly powerful if you work in a team. 


Default map settings: Satellite image now default

Based on popular request, satellite maps are now the default base map layer for all map engagement campaigns.

New feature: Coverage maps 

In PlaceChangers Site Insights, you can now generate coverage maps for a feature category at the click of a button. For instance, select public transport locations and define a walking distance.
