RISMEDIA, August 25, 2010—Maponics, a leading provider of location-based data, and Digital Map Products, a leading provider of Web-enabled spatial solutions, announced a partnership whereby Digital Map Products will offer Maponics Neighborhood Boundaries. Recognizing the strong linkage between mapping applications and the high-quality GIS data that bring them to life, Digital Map Products will offer Maponics datasets coupled with its mapping technology, beginning with North American Neighborhood Boundaries.
As a result, Digital Map Products customers will be able to leverage SpatialStream, the company’s spatial development platform, to easily integrate Maponics data into their applications and develop robust mapping features utilizing such data. By bundling location data with the technology needed to deploy it, SpatialStream helps customers significantly reduce their development time and 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.
“This partnership reflects growing market demand for search and display by neighborhood areas in mapping applications,” said Mark Friend, VP of Sales and Marketing of Maponics. “We are thrilled to be working with Digital Map Products to offer our geographic data as part of a solution that can be deployed quickly and with minimal upfront investment in time and resources.”
“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.”
