NORWICH, Vt.–(Business Wire)–
Maponics (www.maponics.com), a leader in location-based data for businesses, and
Move, Inc. (Nasdaq: MOVE), the leader in online real estate, today announced
Maponics School BoundariesTM and Neighborhood BoundariesTM will soon be
available on the Move Network of real estate Web sites.
As a result, visitors to the Move Network, including Realtor.com and Move.com,
will be able to use data from the Maponics School Boundaries product to view
school locations for primary, middle, high school and other public schools;
private school locations; and attendance zones and district boundaries in
relation to homes and apartments of interest.
In addition, through the Neighborhood Boundaries product, visitors on the Move
Network will also have instant access to neighborhood boundaries, neighborhood
zoning types (e.g., commercial, industrial, residential) and social use
designations (e.g. retirement community, cultural or theatre districts, etc.).
“For many families, searching for their next home includes careful consideration
of school districts, community amenities and other points of interest before
making a decision with confidence on what neighborhoods are right for their
needs,” said Steve Berkowitz, CEO of Move, Inc. “We`re pleased to add these
powerful features to our real estate search experience for the millions of home
buyers using the Move Network to find their next home.”
The newly integrated Maponics feature will be one of many powerful search tools
available on the REALTOR.com site giving visitors an added tool to search and
view key elements of cities and communities. Visitors to Move`s Network will
find that the combination of the Maponics data and the GreatSchoolsTM listing
feature that provides a rating of local schools by parents, will enable them to
make more informed decisions.
“It`s gratifying to work with the leader in real estate search and with more
than 12 million visitors per month, our school and neighborhood boundaries data
will help power a huge number of searches,” said Darrin Clement, CEO of
Maponics. “This is a great example of how important schools and neighborhoods
are in real estate decisions and demonstrates that our data is quickly becoming
the standard in real estate search.”
