    NAC Addin for MapPoint 2009

    NAC Addin for MapPoint 2009

    December 4, 2008, Toronto, Canada, NAC Geographic Products Inc. announced the release of NAC Addin - a powerful complement for MapPoint 2009 and brings the ease and power of Universal Addresses/Natural Area Codes directly onto the desktop software. You can immediately get the detail maps, make local business search and turn-by-turn driving directions not only with lat/lon pairs, street addresses, street intersections, POIs and postcodes/ZIPs, but also with Universal Addresses/Natural Area Codes.

    Commonly used street addresses for location based services have many problems. They are always very long and time consuming to input. They are language dependent and difficult to type when they contain foreign characters. They are full of variations and frequently result in failures. They are available to very limited locations (<1% of the earth surface) and more than 99% of locations can't be specified by street addresses.

    Enhanced with the capability of the Universal Addresses, users of MapPoint 2009 can directly get the maps, seach nearby businesses and obtain turn-by-turn driving directions of any locations in the world whenever they want on their desktop thanks to the efficiency, language independency and geographic complete coverage of the Universal Addresses. For example, you can simply input the short Universal Address: H5Q2 R48Q to get the map of Eiffel Tower in Paris instantly.

    A Universal Address is an eight or ten character Natural Area Code (NAC) which can represent both areas and locations anywhere in the world. A two character NAC can specify any area about 1000 km in length and width like a province, a four character NAC represents a 30 km long and wide area (like a city) approximately, a six character NAC is roughly equivalent to any square kilometer area on the earth, an eight character NAC can uniquely identify every house or building in the world, and a ten character NAC can pinpoint any location in the world to the resolution of one meter.

    With the Natural Area Codes, people can easily represent any areas and locations from countries, provinces, national conservation parks, cities, stadiums, museums, universities, hospitals, shopping malls to hotels, restaurants, post offices, railway stations, bus stops, docks, street lights, fire hydrants, sewage exits, electric wirepoles, trees; and from locations of crimes scenes, accidents, pollutions, underwater wreckages, news events to locations of your dating benches, BBQ tables, camping sites and fishing spots. Therefore, more and more businesses start including the Universal Addresses on their websites, advertisements, business cards and yellow pages listings such as Campgrounds.

    Here are some examples of NAC enhanced products and services:

    - NAC Earth - a Universal Address enhanced Google Earth which allows users to fly to any locations in its virtual earth.
    - NAC Smart Tag DLL automatically highlighting all the Universal Addresses on Outlook emails, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations and Access databases and linking them to their corresponding detail satellite images.
    - Locamagic - a NAC enhanced GPS cellphone application providing positioning, locating, navigating, local business searching, real-time tracking and real-time monitoring services.
    - Universal Addresses Lookup Service and Free Geocoding Service providing Universal Addresses for any locations in the world.
    - NAC Enhanced Google Maps mapping Universal Addresses of any locations in the world on high resolution satellite images.
    NAC Enhanced Google Local displaying the Universal Addresses of all nearby businesses of any location.
    - NAC Enhanced Google Driving Directions providing driving directions between the Universal Addresses of any locations.

    All computers with Windows OS and MapPoint 2009 can install NACAddin. You can download the installation package here free of charge.

    NAC Addin for MapPoint

    Another press release from them --

    Government of Mongolia has passed an important resolution to adopt the revolutionary technology of NAC Geographic Products Inc. - the Universal Address System for all location related services and products in Mongolia

    PR-USA.net - Government of Mongolia Adopts the Universal Address System

    A quote:

    "NAC Addin for MapPoint - a standalone Universal Address enhanced desktop mapping and navigation software."

    Personally I'm still wondering how far this will go.. is there real value in it?
