Maponics Metro Boundaries


Maponics® Metro Boundaries offers map boundaries of the top metropolitan areas across the U.S. and Canada, providing expanded visualization, search and analytic utility for Maponics Communities customers. These densely populated locations are comprised of cities, towns and rural areas that are socio-economically linked to urban centers. They include urban areas in which population concentration is greater than 50,000 and population density is greater than 1,000 people per square mile.

Use Cases

Maponics Metro Boundaries help improve local search capabilities. Increased search capabilities provide a better experience for users and enable precision targeting and relevant messaging, leading to increased customer engagement and conversions.

Real Estate Sales
Prospective home and business buyers often choose a neighborhood before they choose a property. Showing properties by metro gets prospects in front of the real estate they want - fast. 

Goods and Services
Traditional search engines and niche media companies have gone local, pointing people to the nearest goods and services. Metro Boundaries adds value to Neighborhoods providing a search method that is most relevant to the way people think about their local geographies.

Social Media
More and more, social providers are looking for ways to organize their customers or data by regional geographies. Maponics Metro Boundaries makes dataset management and organization simple.
