HomeZilla Leverages Rich, Robust, and Reliable Neighbourhood and Community Boundaries from DMTI Spatial to Power Innovative Canadian Real Estate Website

MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 16, 2008) - DMTI Spatial (DMTI), Canada's leading provider of Location Intelligence solutions, has announced that HomeZilla, a next-generation real estate website that provides homebuyers with efficient access to information about neighbourhoods, has selected DMTI's Neighbourhood and Community Boundaries solution. Linked to all content available on the site, Neighbourhood and Community Boundaries help home buyers pinpoint properties and explore surrounding points of interest within their search area, such as schools, stores, community centers and hospitals.

Officially launched just 4 months ago, HomeZilla is rapidly becoming the website of choice for people in the process of purchasing homes across Canada. Accurate data provided by DMTI allows for better analysis and enables potential customers to clearly define the neighbourhoods they are interested in based on a number of search criteria. The depth and quality of content gives users insights into areas that would otherwise have to be experienced in person giving them the ability to fine-tune their requirements and hone in on the location that meets them.

"Neighbourhood and Community Boundaries offers HomeZilla users an intuitive reference to local places where they are considering a significant life investment" said Robert Szyngiel, Product Manager, DMTI Spatial. "DMTI's understanding of legal and vernacular references to communities represented as discrete boundaries, nestled in many other layers of geographic content, will help HomeZilla offer the highest quality outcomes to their customers."

"There were two main reasons why we selected DMTI's Neighbourhood and Community Boundaries for our site. First, the quality of content provided in the solution is exceptional and second, DMTI's ability to structure a contract ideally suited to a start-up, like us, was fantastic. DMTI took a unique, collaborative approach to our requirements and provided a solution that exactly met our requirements," said Sandy Ward, Founder, HomeZilla.
