I spent some time with the mapping module this week and am happy to announce several enhancements, along with a bug fix for the occasional web timing error when the software initially contacts Google mapping. This error only manifested on some systems under conditions where the computer was extremely fast relative to the network and the desktop timed out waiting for a complete web response. The 12/19/2012 update fixes this sitaution.

The enhancements extend the distance and direction calculator previously released and include the automatic generation of narrative text which discusses the geographic dispersion of subject and comparable properties: minimum, maximum, and average distances; and geographic bounding radius within which the properties are located.
