Progress towards Old Maps Online launch - 2
Tuesday, February 14, 2012
The past two weeks has seen work continue on testing the functionality of the MapRank Search software on the new server.
We've also been working on supporting documentation for the launch. We have been discussing press releases
help site users once we go live. The design of the launch flyers was completed and these have returned from the printers,
we are sending them out for conference delegate packs as I type.
