Rapattoni Creates Custom Map Layers for the MLS of Greater Cincinnati

SIMI VALLEY, Calif., April 23, 2018 – Rapattoni Corporation (Rapattoni) announced today that the company’s mapping team recently created a new set of map layers for the Multiple Listing Service of Greater Cincinnati (Cincinnati MLS), a subsidiary of the Cincinnati Area Board of REALTORS® (CABR), located in Cincinnati, Ohio. A longtime customer of Rapattoni’s MLS and AMS products, CABR recently upgraded to the latest version of Rapattoni Magic-Cloud AMS, and Cincinnati MLS currently serves over 7,400 members in the Greater Cincinnati area and surrounding markets.

The new map layers are fully integrated with the Rapattoni MLS mapping system, providing Cincinnati MLS members with information related to School Districts, Zoning, MLS Areas, Foreclosures, Unimproved Parcels, and more. Each parcel links out to the corresponding county auditor website, and there’s also a Public Schools layer with links to the statewide Ohio School Report Cards site with ratings for K-3 Literacy, Graduation Rate, and so forth. Plus, geographic information data obtained from FEMA allowed for the creation of map layers showing Flood Zones.

Rapattoni maintains an in-house GIS (geographic information systems) team that creates custom map layers to assist agents in providing their customers with regionally important information. The new Cincinnati MLS layers are available for eleven greater Cincinnati counties, including Butler County, Clermont County, Hamilton County, and Warren County. Cincinnati MLS members can also create mailing labels based on the integrated parcel data, including all condominium units.

Stan Marriott, GIS/Parcel Mapping Manager at Rapattoni, said, “We are excited to bring our advanced mapping layers and functionality to the Cincinnati MLS application. By leveraging data we obtained from external sources together with data we created in house, we were able to deploy custom map layers and links to relevant information that will be of benefit to their members.”

Sharon Chard, MLS of Greater Cincinnati Manager, commented, “The new map layers will be an excellent resource for our members working in this fast-paced market.”
