NEW: Upgraded Map Feature for RentWatch4

We have been busy working on improvements to our website; the latest feature is an upgraded map for RentWatch4. Based on user feedback we made the “select area” feature more prominent and improved the usability. You can now draw on the map with your mouse to drill down to the neighborhood level allowing for a more detailed analysis. We also made similarity and credibility more prominent when you click the dots on the map.

Map free form

Note: When using Internet Explorer, it is no longer necessary to keep it in “Compatibility mode” in order to see the map. To turn off this feature, click the icon which looks like a broken piece of paper until it is no longer blue as shown below

compatibility-mode

 

The upgraded map feature is now LIVE in RentWatch4. Please let us know what you think of the improvement, you can email hasupport@gosection8.com or call 561-362-1099 if you have any questions!
