Maponics working on subdivision boundaries

New offering will be available in May

Location-based data and information provider Maponics LLC plans to add subdivision boundaries to its offerings this spring, which the company says will be a useful tool for consumers and real estate professionals conducting online property searches or researching market trends.

Maponics — which already provides neighborhood and school attendance boundaries for a number listing portals, including — says it expects to have 100,000 to 200,000 subdivision boundaries defined for a May launch of the new product.

The number of subdivisions with defined boundaries is expected to grow to more than 500,000 by the end of the year, and more than 1 million by the summer of 2012, said Maponics’ Mark Friend.

"We’re working closely with Realtors Property Resource on this, which should help compress market adoption timeline," Friend said.
