Mapping Services: Extending the Boundaries
Two leaders in the location-based technology field have announced a partnership that brings together sophisticated online mapping applications with high-quality geographic information system (GIS) data. By integrating the geographic datasets from Maponics with the spatial development platform by Digital Map Products, the two companies can provide best-of-breed solutions for Web businesses and consumers with interests in location-based and mapping services.
Users can leverage DMP’s SpatialStream platform with Maponics data to develop robust mapping features that will extract greater value from the Maponics Neighborhood Boundaries layer, which includes more than 100,000 neighborhoods in 2,200 cities across the United States and Canada. Local search, real estate, mobile, social media and marketing firms currently rely on Maponics to power ultra-local interactive search, mapping and ad targeting platforms, and the integration of SpatialStream will significantly reduce their development time. Digital Map Products currently powers national real estate and local government websites with its Web-enabled mapping solutions that use the company’s pioneering spatial technology.
“Because consumers think in neighborhoods, not zip codes, we see tremendous potential for neighborhood data to play an integral role in real estate mapping by powering search, data analysis, trend display, and more,” said Jim Skurzynski, president and CEO of Digital Map Products. “We are excited by the opportunities our partnership with Maponics creates to heighten the value of both our offerings and improve the online consumer real estate experience.”
