Our software includes integrated mapping functions designed to automatically geolocate properties in the local database and to produce comprehensive map exhibits for dynamic property datasets on demand.  These mapping functions are divided in two general categories, both requiring an active internet connection:

  • Research mapping for individual properties, neighborhoods, and cities. This function is available on-demand throughout the software with your choice of access from both Google Maps and Microsoft Bing Mapping.
  • Customized dataset selection, address geocoding, and mapping which will automatically produce comprehensive map exhibits for RentComps, Improved SaleComps, and Land SaleComps. The Mapping Module extends the basic Google Maps technology to address the mapping requirements for most property presentations. 

The acompanying screenshot illustrates the preview map where marker locations and map framing can be adjusted before generation of the map exhibit.

After data selection and map preview, which takes as little as two mouse clicks, you are ready to generate your map exhibit, a process which is initiated by clicking the 'Generate' command button.  After clicking the 'Generate' command button, the right screen panel will be devoted to an on-screen representation of the finished map exhibit, as illustrated by the accompanying screenshot.

Because our software often downloads Latitude and Longitude values along with other property data from assessor, MLS, and other online sources of real estate information without verification of geocoding accuracy or methodology, we incorporated an easy-to-use tool to adjust geocoded property locations manually using the mouse. For lack of a better term, we call the process GeoTweaking and it is accessed from main or context menus under 'GeoTweak', our term for manual adjustment of computer-derived geocoding by moving a map marker with the mouse.  This is helpful because many properties are inaccurately geocoded, resulting in property markers which are not within the property boundary.
