SUNSHINE COAST INTERACTIVE REAL ESTATE MAP
ADDS LOCAL BUSINESS INFORMATION
SECHELT, BC, CANADA — May 27, 2011 — Sunshine Coast real estate agent Gary Little has today integrated local business information with his interactive real estate maps of the area. Now — for the first time — it is possible to see the locations of major businesses in the vicinity of a property for sale as well as basic contact information for these businesses. All MLS®-listed homes and vacant lots on the Sunshine Coast — an area located in British Columbia 40 minutes by ferry from West Vancouver — are displayed on the maps with rare exceptions.
This new capability leverages Google Inc.'s new Places API (Application Programming Interface) which was launched earlier this month at the Google I/O conference in San Francisco. The API provides easy access to a comprehensive, global database of business information maintained by Google and its data providers.
