Combination of Digital Map Products Technology and NDA Legal Expertise Produces Windfall Benefits to End Users

Santa Monica, CA – February 20, 2008 – National Disclosure Authority (NDA), an independent hazard disclosure company, announced today its partnership with Digital Map Products (DMP), the world’s leading provider of web-based embedded mapping and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) solutions. The companies first began working together in 2007 and successfully created exclusive software that integrates NDA’s legal and disclosure expertise with DMP’s advanced mapping technology. The new software enhances NDA’s unparalleled disclosure reporting by providing state-of-the-art mapping capabilities allowing heightened accuracy of hazard location to within inches of a client’s property line, and real-time updates of federal, state, and local maps. This cutting edge technology is unrivaled in the hazard disclosure industry.

“In our industry, accuracy is everything. If a mistake is made regarding a hazard disclosure, it won’t matter how much insurance a disclosure company carries – the sellers, their agents, and their brokerages will get sued. If a client has to rely on a disclosure company’s insurance, they have already lost. The key to avoiding that liability is to eliminate any possibility of a mistake. The advanced technology and processes we have developed with DMP ensure that NDA’s clients will never have to worry about that,” said Farah Nourmand, Chief Legal Officer of National Disclosure Authority. “DMP is the undisputed leader in the integration of Geographic Information Systems for the disclosure industry – they are an essential element in our commitment to the most accurate disclosure reporting, the advancement of our green initiatives, and providing outstanding customer service,” she added.

Digital Map Products is leading the way for the next generation of embedded Geographic Information Systems (GIS) products. The company has successfully pioneered the deployment of complex spatial data technology to real-world applications, enabling advanced decision-making for a broad audience of business professionals. Digital Map Products provides solutions to a cross section of markets, with customers such as The CoStar Group, LoopNet, Fidelity Cyberhomes, ZipRealty, Redfin, real estate developers, homebuilders, and local government agencies.

“As the most experienced player in its industry, NDA understands the importance of accurate mapping technology in hazard disclosure. We are thrilled to partner with them to provide a product that sets a new standard of excellence for disclosure,” said James Skurzynski, President of Digital Map Products.
