Albers USA to Web Mercator – (For the map geeks) transform from National view, projected as “Albers USA” to Web Mercator with tiled basemap. This feature enables users to explore choropleth map in the conventional National view – with Alaska and Hawaii presented below mainland USA. As user zooms toward regional scale, map will switch to Web Mercator for a conventional web map experience.
