Beyond dots on a map.
That’s the new tagline of GIS software firm Azavea, which has undergone a branding overhaul since it changed its name in March following a disputed legal claim.
As part of that move, last month, the shop based in the Callowhill neighborhood unveiled a new look to its website, completing the shift from a decade-old Avencia name to its new Azavea brand. Read about their CMS here.
The new look coincides with news that Azavea continues to expand the map they go beyond.
Already with legislative boundaries, contact and other information for the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, Azavea’s prized Cicero API now includes the United Kingdom, according to a release from the company.
The district matching and elected official lookup API, which has been used for local projects like one with Common Cause PA to offer a searchable database of political contributions, will now allow users to match addresses in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to their corresponding legislative districts, including the U.K. Parliament, Greater London Assembly, the Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly for Wales and the Northern Ireland Assembly.
All told, the Cicero system now includes nearly 11,000 legislative boundaries and information sets on more than 12,000 elected officials.-30-
