SANTA ANA, CA–(Marketwire – June 11, 2007) – Digital Map Products ( today announced that they have signed an agreement with Environmental Data Resources, Inc. (EDR) to provide advanced property research capabilities for EDR’s City Directory Abstract using Digital Map Product’s (DMP’s) ParcelStream™ web service. This initial agreement is one of several business arrangements in discussion between the companies that would leverage the synergy between EDR’s extensive environmental database and products with DMP’s Internet subscription platform.

Said EDR’s CEO Robert Barber, “The complement of what each of our companies brings to the table is a perfect fit for many applications that would be of mutual benefit in our respective markets.”

Based on city directory research conducted nationwide, the EDR City Directory Abstract includes directory information dating back to the 1800s. For each address, the names of occupants at five-year intervals are listed. In an increasing number of cities, EDR’s City Directory Abstract is provided via electronic search and mapping methods, which enables a radius-based search of directory records.

“While many organizations have amassed considerable digital content, it is the power of GIS-embedded applications that truly leverages content into valuable decision support information that can be used on a broad scale,” said DMP President Jim Skurzynski.

DMP also makes its parcel data inventory available to other third-party developers through its ParcelStream™ web service. Using ParcelStream™, companies needing access to parcel boundary information can tap into DMP’s extensive data repository without having to develop and deploy specialized resources not typically available to most organizations. With the signing of this agreement, EDR joins a growing list of organizations that are realizing the value of parcel boundaries as an integrated part of their product offerings.
