At Trulia, we use interactive map visualizations to present large amounts of information in an easy-to-understand format. Today, Trulia released interactive map visualizations that bring two distinct new categories of information that help to better inform house hunters.
The first new map is dedicated to rentals. Now, consumers can browse through color-coded neighborhoods and quickly focus their search on neighborhoods that meet their budget.
The second set of maps visualizes historical earthquake and flood data to depict environmental risk at a block-by-block level. Up until now, the risk of these events has traditionally been hard for home buyers, sellers, and renters to find. Now house hunters can use our maps to see flood zones and understand where earthquakes, for example are more common, in order to make informed decisions about where to move.
With today’s launch across Android mobile and web platforms, rental prices and environmental risks join Trulia’s robust suite of interactive visualizations, which already feature home values, crime, school rankings, commute times and local amenities such as banks, gas stations, restaurants and grocery stores.
Details of the New Trulia Map Visualizations
Trulia’s visualizations are accessible on the web by visiting http://www.trulia.com/local. Select a city and then utilize the menu on the left-hand side to see properties, home values, crimes, schools, commute times, amenities, rental rates and environmental risks of floods and earthquakes. On Android mobile, click on the layer icon in the upper right corner and select heat maps from the menu.
Today, we are excited to announce the launch of the Trulia Real Estate App and the Trulia Rentals App designed for Amazon’s brand new Kindle Fire HD. The new Kindle Fire HD brings dual stereo speakers with Dolby audio, ultra-fast Wi-Fi /4G LTE wireless, and most exciting of all: mapping & location capabilities.
Taking advantage of the Kindle Fire HD’s new mapping and location-based features, we’ve released these two Trulia apps – available starting today for free at the Amazon Appstore for Android – to enable home buyers and renters to take their house hunt on the road for a more interactive, hands-on search.
Our Trulia apps include:
