Tour the news with Pegman.

CREReport goes interactive.

CREReport.co needed a new website. We thought readers would also like having a map with highlighted news. Not going to lie, we didn't really plan on how Google Street View would make the experience even better.

We wanted to provide a better experience for CREReport.co readers. For starters, we needed to throw out the old website. It was showing its age and wasn’t compatible with newer devices.

We knew we wanted to put more context on the stories we include in the report. Since it focuses on real estate, it was pretty obvious that we needed to include maps. 

My job was to build the system and play “data architect” for mountains of information. Truth of the matter, I became so focused on development that I didn’t see the big picture.

It wasn't until I got out of beta testing that it hit me! Mapping the news didn't just give readers a clear view of where the news was taking place but also the chance to tour it.

Click on a marker, get a summary of the news. But drag Pegman to the spot and you get a first-hand view of the location. I know, I know, we’ve all used street view before. But now you’re able to get right in front of the location without extra steps or work.

I have to admit, I got excited seeing it all take form. This is the information I already was so very familiar with since I researched it. The map contextualized it. And street view suddenly made it real.

So we are excited to see if there’s a group that wants something like this, too. We see it working for any business that provides location-based information. If you’re one of them, please call or email. We would love to meet you.
