Adtile Announces US Patent Office Grant for Map Marker Aggregation

Intuitive and widely adopted mobile technology for improved map-based experience and displays of photos, videos, live-stream videos, GIFs, Tweets, Emojis, Data, and other user generated social objects

SAN DIEGO, July 26, 2016 — (PRNewswire) —   Adtile Technologies, a pioneer and developer of motion-sensing technology for smartphones and tablets, announced that it has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 9,401,100 for selective map marker aggregation, which it invented in 2011. This location-based map marker technology has now become a standard and is widely used by some of the most popular mobile applications available today such as Photo Apps, Social Networks, Live-video streaming App, and many others.

Before Adtile developed this technology, mapping applications would show hundreds of pinpoints of information on a map, rendering the content useless and making it impossible to discover any information, particularly relevant information. It is now possible to show content such as photos, live-stream videos, videos, GIFs, tweets, or emojis, plotted on a map in a smartphone app under one larger content marker showing the number of data points such as photos in that area. As you pinch and zoom in or out of the map, it will show more specific locations, or the data points will aggregate and show as separate pieces of content, saving space and allowing for better accessibility and discovery of the location-based content.

For example, with the introduction of iOS 7, you can see the photos you took on your iPhone on a map by tapping on the location header. All of the pictures from that "moment" or section of photos will appear on a map. You can then zoom in or out to see the pictures in more specific or more general locations on your map.

"In 2011, location-based mobile technology was still in its infancy compared to what we are doing today with the device sensors," said Nils Forsblom, founder and CEO of Adtile Technologies. "I'm honored that Adtile's Selective Map Marker Aggregation Technology has gained such huge popularity in the developer community in an effort to build apps that deliver delightful and useful experiences to users."

This is one of the many US patents Adtile had been granted this year, including the recent issuance from the U.S. Patent Office for US 9,256,358, US D751,574, US D752,062 and many other approvals from the European Union Intellectual Property Office.
