Real Estate/Travel Searches Plug into Latest Tech/Data

These announcements feel to me like they should have already happened, but perhaps it’s a sign of the economy or that GIS and location technology are not all that mainstream, especially in business.

Orbitz, the travel site, has added StreetView (though it takes some doing to find it) to its hotel map listing. (The LA Times has a nice write up of why you’d use it.)

Trulia, the real estate site, has added neighborhood data from Maponics to its searches, maps and to better support advertising. Per the press release (not yet on the Maponics website, but published elsewhere, like Ris Media): “This new alliance will increase Trulia’s neighborhood coverage by more than 300%.”
