Switching between map and satellite view

By default, the map will load in grey-scale each browsing session. This is to give more color contrast when applying layers such as 'Households' to your map. You may want to load a satellite view instead to give your map a different look. To do this, simply click 'Satellite view' or the toggle to the right of it in the 'Options' section of the control panel. Clicking again will return the map to grey-scale.

info Note: 'Satellite view' is not compatible with the 'Highlighting highways' option. Enabling 'Satellite view' will turn off the 'Highlighting highways' option.
