Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB)—December 10, 2009 —Hanley Wood Market Intelligence and DataMap Intelligence enter into an agreement to exchange proprietary new home development data that each company collects in an effort to strengthen both parties flagship products.
“This exchange of core information sets allows Hanley Wood Market Intelligence to strengthen our product offerings to the homebuilding community” said Andrew Reid, President.
Hanley Wood Market Intelligence will be overlaying DataMap STREETS geospatial data project shapes onto existing mapping features in the Builder InfoTools strategic planning solution. The DataMap geospatial project shapes can then be easily be layered onto the underlying map, creating an easy to read visual. Builders and land developers can now see the exact location of virtually all new residential developments within a specific area, the street layout, size and position of lots, types of lots approved for the area, approval dates and other valuable data overlaid on aerial imagery. This will revolutionize the way builders and land developers explore opportunities.
“As a developer, I craved this information…” says Charlie Schwab, President of DataMap Intelligence and a land developer himself. We will be releasing an application for use with GPS enabled smart phones. It will perform the same functions with the added benefit that the information will change as the car travels, thereby displaying all developments within the area, adds Schwab.
