App developers Puca have revised the GeoFindIT business location app for GeoDirectory to include an augmented reality function that provides real-time overlays of house prices, directions and more.
Users can check out local property prices by strolling down their street with GeoFindIT open on their phone. When the augmented reality setting is open, the app works intuitively, displaying price and direction information for properties in whichever direction the user’s phone is pointing.
The app draws data from the Property Price Register to ensure all property prices displayed in the app are as accurate as possible.
The GeoDirectory database is Ireland’s most comprehensive, accurate and complete address database and has assigned all 2.2 million addresses in Ireland a unique reference or fingerprint and a location code accurate to one metre.
By combining this database with the Property Price Register GeoFindIT, gives users a very accessible means to find out about the property prices sold anywhere in Ireland. This data underlies and drives the GeoFindIT App.
The free app also has has a completely redesigned search feature. Whether you are looking for a barber in Bandon, a dentist in Dún Laoghaire or simply a house anywhere in Ireland, GeoFindIT will help you find it.
GeoFindIT has over 195,000 business addresses and covers every corner of the Republic of Ireland, not just major towns and cities.
The app was designed specifically for iOS and Android Smart-Phones (iOS7 and above and Android 2.3.3. and above), developed using native SDKs (Objective C for iPhone and Java for Android). The app will also function on iPad and Android Tablets.
GeoDirectory was jointly established by An Post and Ordnance Survey Ireland to create and manage Ireland’s only complete database of commercial and residential buildings. The figures are recorded through a combination of the An Post network of 5,600 delivery staff working with OSi.
The GeoDirectory database is used by many different companies and organisations across a diverse range of applications.
Its database and services are used by Central Statistics Office to achieve more accurate census results, Gas Networks Ireland has used for GeoDirectory to identify and categorise new potential customers and 11890 Directory Inquiries have used GeoDirectory to provide detailed directions and maps to their customers.
In the property sector, GeoDirectory is used by Daft.ie and the Property Registration Authority. In addition, utility companies, banking and insurance providers, and all local authorities use the database.
