Creating custom areas just got even easier

Creating custom areas by drawing on a map is up there as one of the most used features in Local Insight. And although it was already pretty simple to create your local neighbourhoods and communities, we wanted to make it even easier.

We have added brand new functionality to make it quicker and easier to find the area you are talking about. When drawing a custom area on the map, you can now click on the Jump to Location button, enter a postcode or a place name and hey presto –  you will be re-centred to that area on the map.
