    Local Spatial Search Server

    Hello I am comparing MapPoint Web Service and Mapquest Service and I wanted to know if MapPoint Web Service offered a Local Spatial Search Server? Mapquest offers this service, but I want to go with MWS if this feature is offered. The Local Spatial Search Server (LSSS) allows Advantage API users to search their
    own databases without first uploading database information to MapQuest servers.
    The LSSS is especially beneficial in cases where databases are so large (one million
    or more records) that it's impractical to upload them to MapQuest servers. The
    LSSS is also beneficial in situations involving highly sensitive data or data that is
    updated very frequently, such as hotel data that is updated daily. Since LSSS allows
    databases to reside locally instead of on MapQuest servers, users can utilize standard
    database APIs such as ODBC, JDBC, OLEDB, etc. to perform normal database
    searches.
