With the second patent recently issued, and five more pending, LandNet Corporation is currently exploring the opportunity to sell the Internet mapping platform along with its portfolio of intellectual properties. The company is also interested in joint venture opportunities such as a strategic merger or technology/patent licensing. Interested parties should contact Craig Harrison, CEO at 970-612-4100 or Craig@harrisonresource.com.
"Real Estate has clearly emerged as the primary commercial application in the red hot online mapping market," said LandNet CEO, Craig Harrison. "The recent merger of Stewart Title's GlobeXplorer site with DigitalGlobe underscores the value of property mapping in the market for online geospatial data. And the Pitney Bowes acquisition last week of MapInfo highlights the value of digital mapping in the business world."
On January 30, 2007, the U.S. Patent Office awarded patent 7,171,389 with 26 claims to the Property Archive tool entitled "identification, storage, and display of land data on a Web site." This patent dates back to June 1, 2001, when internet mapping was at its infancy.
"Unlike the "static" aerial photos that are seen on sites such as Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo, Property Archives turns each ordinary map or aerial photo into a dynamic password-secure, site-specific personalized website allowing user interaction to upload photographs, e-documents, and important web links," said Harrison.
The Property Archive patent issuance follows the May 30th, 2006, announcement when LandNet was issued its first patent 7,054,741 with 49 patent claims which relate to a multitude of online mapping and searching tools that are described as the "Land Software Tool."
The Property Archive System
Property Archive was developed as an extension to the www.LandVoyage.com mapping solution. LandVoyage has successfully served over 50 million maps over the past six years. Property Archive simplifies real estate transactions and management by archiving critical data relating to individual pieces of property. Available at www.PropertyArchive.com, the unique property website aids marketing efforts, speeds due diligence and encourages centralized management of real estate information.
PropertyArchive uses the LandVoyage mapping solution to enable individuals with no online technical expertise to create a site-specific website in minutes to serve as the central archive for all maps, real estate documents and transaction information for any property in the United States.

The patented LandVoyage map drawing and measuring tools, advanced location search options, and extensive access to imagery and map data make the PropertyArchive platform possible. A LandVoyage user can quickly and easily create an information archive for any property in the U.S. by simply locating the parcel on a map, drawing a boundary around it, and then creating a unique website for it with a click of a mouse.
