Back in March I wrote about Blue Dasher Technologies, a Miami-based company that made 360-degree street-level digital maps of every public street in South Florida. It is similar to Google Street View, but Google is limited to a few major roadways.
The Beacon Council, Miami-Dade County's economic development organization, is using Blue Dasher's images to help lure companies to relocate and expand into Dade. Businesses will be able to log online from anywhere and scope out 360-degree photos of any area to get a better idea of what neighborhoods look like.
"We selected Blue Dasher because it was the best tool for the business people that we're working with," Frank Nero, president and chief executive of The Beacon Council, said in a press release. "The images are more detailed, the addresses are exact, it's easier to use and it's comprehensive. For the companies we work with, this means saving time and money when they're evaluating a region and comparing competing proposals."
