You can zoom in and out to view Public Rights of Way, Access Land and the Dartmoor Commons, and many other layers including Historic Environment and Flood Risk. You can change the background mapping, look at the legends for each layer and measure the length of paths using the 'Map Options'.in the top right-hand corner (and if you click the question mark you will find help on using the new map)
