MapInfo to Showcase Wireless Commercial Real Estate Application

Innovative Solution Enables Brokers to Query Property Listings Using Demographic and Location Data

MapInfo Corporation (Nasdaq: MAPS) today announced it will feature its cutting-edge technology, MapInfo(R) MapXtend(TM) and MapInfo(R) MapInsight(TM), in an innovative demonstration for commercial real estate brokers to query property listings using demographic and spatial data while in the field. MapInfo will showcase this solution at ICSC (booth no.465).

The application provides brokers with a unique and convenient way to view property listings while on the road. The broker can easily access the corporate database via a wireless handheld device, either a Palm device or a Windows CE device, and view potential sites using a combination of geographic, demographic and standard real estate queries. The result lets brokers and agents target properties based on proximity to key locations such as restaurants, malls and schools, as well as critical demographic information such as median income and population density. The ability to link to MapInfo's online driving directions, miDirections(TM), will also be featured.

"We have focused on demonstrating the functionality that agents really need and have put it into the palm of their hands," said Jon Winslow, CRM market director at MapInfo. "With these products, MapInfo is turning analysis into action by making sophisticated queries easy and portable, a key competitive advantage for commercial real estate brokers who are constantly on the go and need to access important data to make critical business decisions."
