GatheringPoint is now offering its hyperlocal map information to content partners who want to enrich user experience on their web and mobile platforms. The HTML5-based map widget is easy to integrate with other content layers and can be customized, as needed.
GatheringPoint’s pilot partners have been pleased with their user reactions to instant access for local information sources, including news and events, health resources, environmental happenings, social media, weather, and daily deals. Local residents, as well as travelers, are demanding more and more map-based information.
“With dozens of data layers, we can build a geo-experience that becomes a daily, or even hourly habit, for users seeking information on what is happening where they are or where they are going,” says Spencer Nassar, CEO of GatheringPoint.
Bruce Carlisle, CEO of ConferenceHound, has been pleased with the user experience, saying, “Not only do GatheringPoint’s local maps now allow attendees to see evening entertainment and dining choices, but we also provide instant location of their friends and colleagues.”
Recent content additions to local maps include Word Clouds aggregating tweet messages from public places (what are they Tweeting in Cairo right now?), as well as neighborhood events from Meetup and EventBrite.
