In addition to showing streets, parcel outlines and aerial photography, Geocockpit 360 also allows for providing additional information about points of interest, such as local attractions and businesses, and driving directions to those places. The site also features 360 degree views of select areas of town that highlight economic development opportunities, such as historic downtown, existing commercial corridors, and typical residential areas.
Geocockpit 360 is a product of Drahola Technologies, a Lake Wylie-based geospatial consulting company that helps towns like Clover manage and display their geodata more effectively at an affordable cost.
From the link on the Town’s website, users will be taken to a map screen of Clover and, from there, be able to locate an attraction or business on the map or by category, get directions, obtain the contact information, etc. The site also allows for businesses to advertise weekly deals and news. Geocockpit 360 for Clover is accessible from smart phones too.
Clover businesses who want to have an enhanced listing on the site can subscribe for $25 per year, or $10 for Clover Chamber of Commerce members. The enhanced listing would include a description and picture of the business, website address, etc. Town Administrator Allison Harvey stated, “This site provides a low cost opportunity for local businesses to advertise on-line. Not only will this advertising help Clover citizens learn about our local businesses, but it will also show how active our business climate is to others who may be looking to Clover for a business opportunity.” The small annual fee will help offset the costs of the software.
Local businesses who want to be a point of interest on the interactive map can provide their information on-line via the Interactive Map. Just click on the orange box with the white plus (+) sign to get started. Or use this form.
