SIMI VALLEY, Calif., November 1, 2016 – Rapattoni Corporation (Rapattoni) announced today that the Rapattoni MLS has released a new interactive map search that leverages the Google Maps™ mapping service. This dynamic new component includes a full-page map search which combines advanced MLS mapping tools with popular features such as Google Street View™ and directions.
Live listing results display instantly as the user moves the map, with interactive pins providing access to individual listings. Collapsible side panels allow users to quickly revise criteria, view listing detail, and manage checked listings without leaving the map interface. MLS users can also draw freeform shapes or create circles and rectangles to define custom search areas with 'include' or 'exclude' logic.
The new interactive map features a responsive design geared to phones and tablets as well as desktops and notebooks, and it's available in the desktop MLS, the mobile Edge MLS, and the new Rapattoni MLS Mobile App for iOS and Android, so MLS members can use the new interface's powerful mapping tools on all of their computers and mobile devices.
Destyn Dagle, Director of MLS & IWS Software at Rapattoni, said, "The new interactive map is a huge improvement and moving to Google Maps opens the doorway for a lot of very exciting mapping enhancements in the future. Over the next several months we're going to integrate parcel mapping, custom map layers, routing, and additional features into the new map to further extend its capabilities."
"Another great advantage of the new interactive map search is that it is cross-platform compatible with an interface designed for touch-based mobile devices as well as computers equipped with keyboard and mouse," added Madeleine Talbot-Leighton, Product Manager at Rapattoni. "Users can save map searches on a PC, phone, or tablet, and then run those saved searches on any of their other devices."
