Implement and Integrate Concept3D Tile Server
- Description: All Leaflet and MapboxGL maps are now using Concept3D’s very own Tile Server! This includes Interactive Maps and maps in the CMS as well as features such as Print Map and Static Maps. The Tile Server is not yet used for 360° Maps, Tour Builder, satellite view maps, or maps using Google map tiles, but we hope to integrate the Tile Server into these services in the future.
Above is an example of one of the many OSM maps that now use Concept3D’s own Tile Server.
(ADA) Prompt CMS user to add Alternative Text to image being uploaded
- Description: Alternative text allows screen reader users to understand the content of an image. Alternative text also gives sighted users a more in-depth understanding of the image. To assist with this, CMS users are now required to enter alternative text whenever they upload an image.
The image editor automatically opens after a CMS user uploads an image. Users will be required to add alternative text to the image for accessibility.

MapboxGL maps load directly to specific orientation
- Description: MapboxGL maps are unique compared to OSM/Leaflet and Google maps. MapboxGL maps have the ability to tilt and rotate the map view. These are represented by pitch and bearing in the map share URL now, and can generally be thought of as map orientation. MapboxGL maps will load in a classic, top-down view, but quickly and smoothly animate to the specified orientation once the map tiles are loaded.
