Maponics LLC, a provider of neighborhood boundary data, announced the beta release of the MAPONICS SPATIAL API - Neighborhood Data to selected existing customers. Maponics now delivers its neighborhood dataset via an application programming interface (API), including all neighborhood boundaries. This database covers 60,000 neighborhoods in over 2,300 U.S. and Canadian cities. Specific queries supported will include lists of neighborhoods closest to a location point; the neighborhood in which a latitude and longitude point or typed address falls; list of neighborhoods within a city, ZIP Code, or state; and neighborhood boundary surrounding a given address or location point. Maponics expects to announce full API availability for all of its datasets in March 2009.
