Hover over the maps in style!

Keen-eyed users may have noticed something different about the areas you can hover over in Local Insight – that’s because we’ve improved the way you can interact with data displayed on the map.

Hover feature

As part of our recent move to using 2011 boundaries in Local Insight, we undertook work to improve the way data is displayed on the map. Previously when data was displayed on the map, it was only possible to see the data value for an individual LSOA by hovering over it. Now our new and improved map allows you to see the indicator value of any individual LSOA, MSOA or LA!

This improvement and the design of the functionality was inspired by input from a number of users. So a big thank you to all of those people who gave us feedback on this area of the site. For example, previously when you selected an area, the data value disappeared and only the geographic code displayed. We received lots of feedback identifying how it is valuable to see both the code and the data value and so we have changed this to always show both
