Maponics Unveils Context Dining & Nightlife Scores

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, VT – Maponics, a leader in geospatial data, today announced the release of Context™ Dining & Nightlife Scores, which provides ratings that highlight the dining and nightlife opportunities available in neighborhoods, subdivisions, ZIP Code boundaries and other specific geographic areas.

Dining & Nightlife Scores will help consumers, advertisers and investors understand which neighborhoods have the most restaurants - including fine dining, family dining and fast food - as well as bars and clubs.

Because studies show that properties that are closer to points of interest (POIs), such as restaurants, often hold their value more successfully than those farther from POIs, the Dining & Nightlife Scores product is vital to investors in the rental market and to advertisers targeting specific populations.

Product Manager Mike Villarreal gave an example of the potential of Dining & Nightlife from his own experience: “When I moved to Boston, I didn’t know the city at all, and I wound up living downtown,” he said. “Eventually, I moved to the city’s North End because I wanted to live in a place that was alive in the evenings, that had restaurants, music venues and more.” The new Maponics product, he said, “could have pointed me in the right direction from the beginning.” 

Dining & Nightlife Scores is another enhancement to the Maponics Context product suite, which applies highly sophisticated modeling to big data on lifestyle and behavior and conveys the results within Maponics’ boundaries. The Context suite, unveiled in January 2013, is designed to give a nuanced and holistic picture of the character of geographies.

“Dining & Nightlife is one more component in building a comprehensive picture of what is happening in a particular area,” said Villarreal. “It gives the true ‘flavor’ of a neighborhood.” When combined with Context Demographics, Context PRIZM, Context Walkability and the other datasets within the Context suite, Dining & Nightlife is a valuable tool that helps the real estate industry, social media applications, direct marketing firms and many others leverage the benefits of highly granular, descriptive data.
