Telecom Map Data - Now Available With Flexible Licensing

Several next-gen telcos, as well as industry giants, now use Maponics Telecom Boundaries™. Up-to-date boundaries for rate centers, LATAs, and area codes have been officially released today for licensing.

Norwich, VT - Maponics announced today the official release of its telecom map data, a critical tool for analyzing and displaying market coverage areas and planning direct marketing initiatives. Accurate boundaries, flexible licensing and a la carte, customizable layers make Maponics Telecom Boundaries™ the best way to ensure market effectiveness while complying with FCC and anti-trust regulations.

Industry leaders are already using Maponics rate center and LATA boundaries, coupled with internal data, to advertise service coverage areas via interactive web-based mapping applications (also provided by Maponics). Ideal for direct marketing planning, several next generation telecom companies are also employing Maponics Telecom Boundaries™ to visualize ZIP Code and rate center overlap. This helps ensure that only households within contracted areas are targeted.

"Maponics has long offered the premier database of telephone exchanges - NPANXX codes, which includes latitude and longitude, as well as ZIP Code references," explains Director of Mapping & Data Operations, Steve Zuckerman. "Now, with our telecom GIS data files for rate centers, LATAs, and area codes (NPAs) - plus more products in the works - we offer a well-rounded product line for spatial analysis in the telco world."

Using a proprietary process, Maponics builds rate center map boundaries from base geography to ensure a high quality product, and then links rate centers to create LATA and area code boundaries. Maponics licenses rate center boundaries, area codes, and LATA coverages in GIS data formats ESRI® shapefile and MapInfo® tab plus other database-loadable formats. Compatible add-on data includes ZIP Codes, carrier routes, and demographics.
