Laguna Hills, California (PRWEB) October 6, 2006
TeleMapics LLC, a privately held consulting practice focused on Local Search, Location Based Services and the use of Geographic Information (GI), announced today the publication of its 2006 overview of the Local Search industry. The white paper, titled “Local Search – Time for a Tune Up?” is available in PDF format at http://www.telemapics.com. The paper is free, non-commercial and does not require registration to download a copy.
“Local Search is the use of online services to discover the specific location of products, services or businesses in a geographic area that meet the thematic and location criteria provided by search users,” said Dr. Mike Dobson, President of TeleMapics. Dobson added, “We believe that Local Search is a technology that will lead to significant changes in how consumers search for information on buying opportunities and how advertisers choose to connect with consumers.”
The sixty-one page white paper provides an overview of the industry, defines its core services and variants, reviews aspects of the services that do not work well and provides observations on what needs to improve before Local Search is ready for prime time. The report should be of significant advantage to financial analysts and others who are interested in the future promise of this fast-growing industry.
