Matrix Mapping Welcomes Improved Property Locations!

June 23, 2011  |  by Tim

Matrix welcomes new mapping enhancements! Now, the location of a property (meaning the property push pin) is located at the center of the lot property, instead of being located at street level.

Moving the location of the property to the center of the lot will:

  • Improve Matrix map search accuracy
  • Ensure a more accurate identification of the listing’s location
  • Avoid confusion

To get technical, we call this centriod geocoding (has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?). But all you need to know about this enhancement is that accuracy is improved and confusion on property location is minimized. Present with confidence, your listing will be located at it’s precise location every time.  This enhancement will be made to all MRIS listings.

This property adjustment, and “pushpin relocation” has been completed on all active MRIS listings.  Note, If you are the listing agent and don’t agree with the location of the pushpin, you always have the ability to reposition to what you believe is a more accurate location.

For a “before-and-after” comparison, check out the image below of the MRIS office in Rockville, MD.  Before today, the location of MRIS was noted with the purple pushpin, on the street level.  Now, MRIS is noted with a purple pushpin, correctly marking the location of MRIS at the center of the property.  See how the accuracy is improved? Imagine how this will help your day-to-day business!  Happy searching!

  1. Leave it to MRIS to give us even better tools than we knew we needed! This looks awesome. Thanks!

    Thanks, Natalie! Remember, if you are the listing agent, you can always move the location of the pushpin. This may apply best to oddly shaped lots, or if the house is not in the center of the lot – feel free to adjust the pushpin to better represent your listing's location!

    Now if they could add scholl district as a search parameter?

    For mapping, Montgomery County ought to do what DC does with its mapping. Outline each lot from the arial view. Makes it very easy to see property lines, other lots affecting the subject property and clearly defines shape of lot. Very hepful.

    And for agents, Keystone should allow agents to "pre-load" pictures prior to entering listing into MRIS. A time-saving tool we can all benefit from.

    Another great benefit to Media Connect is the ability to save your work area at any time. Upload photos now and add captions later, and submit to the MLS only when you're ready. For more information on Media Connect, check out this post (with a great overview video as well!)
