Revolutionary Navigational & Mapping Tool. ICAP Patent Brokerage Announces for Auction a Portfolio of Patented Design Improvements that Simplifies Map Navigation

LOS ANGELES, March 12, 2012 — (PRNewswire) —   ICAP Patent Brokerage, a division of ICAP plc and the world's largest intellectual property brokerage firm and organizer of ICAP Ocean Tomo Auctions, is offering for auction a patented navigational and mapping tool from Dense Media, Inc. The lot will be included in the 15th ICAP Ocean Tomo IP Auction on March 29, 2012, at Terranea Resort near Los Angeles, California. 

Key Characteristics & Benefits

Navigational aids based on today's cartographic paradigm are essentially mere variations on maps used for the last several millennia.  Both cumbersome to read and limited in their content these maps do not provide for the additional information that is both available to and desired by consumers.

This patent portfolio addresses the limitations of mapping and navigation products in the market and discloses a novel, columnar layout for navigational aids and maps. 

  • The disclosed layout greatly improves usability of navigational aids and maps, and increases the available space for conveying additional information.  
  • Further, new capabilities such as advertising, personal communications, and entertainment can be integrated into the navigational aids.
  • The disclosed navigational tool is simpler, less expensive to manufacture, and reduces user response time, eyestrain and fatigue.
  • The disclosed navigational tool can be applied to navigational aids that include pre-printed maps, on-demand computer maps, compasses, and global positioning systems (GPS).

Market Potential

This portfolio is important for manufacturers of navigation devices and maps.

Companies who have cited this patent portfolio include:

Apple, Fujifilm Corporation, Alpine Electronics
