New digital project
A mobile app that processes millions of data points and provides results from complicated search queries.
MapVida is an industry leading neighborhood comparison tool. The platform evaluates millions of data points when studying neighborhoods, and as a result, provides context about them and makes them familiar to its users.
Unlike tools like walkability scores and school quality that provide insight into only one aspect of a neighborhood, MapVida‘s tool incorporates millions of data points and feedback from users around the world to provide a comprehensive, meaningful, and detailed analytical comparison of neighborhoods.
This way, users get a clearer picture by putting it in the context of a neighborhood they already know.
The goal of the project was to create a mobile application for individual users that could check the analytical abilities of the MapVida platform. The iOS app was interfaced with a BI backend and provided on-demand calculations based on the historical data gathered in the system. Another goal was to improve the performance of the BI platform by optimizing the underlying database model. Espeo also updated the user interface part of the BI solution offered to corporate customers by adding new ways of chart rendering and data visualization.
The app allowed users to compare and filter neighborhoods and search for similar places. Highcharts was used for drawing the charts and Google Maps for drawing the neighborhoods on the map. The backend part was done using a .NET stack, along with a MSSQL database. The data rendering part on the web application part was also done using the Highcharts library. Testing of the delivered solutions was also a part of the project.
“By far, they’re the best third-party mobile development with which we have worked. Espeo feels like an extension of our team… Along with their communication, the work product was top-notch.”
