Using the Spatial Operations API by MapFruition can add GIS based functionality (spatial capabilities) to developers' applications and websites. This includes operations such as buffering a point, geocoding an address (convert address to point), reverse geocoding from a point location (convert point to address), point to point travel time analysis, and travel time polygon generation (Some refer to this as service area or drive time analysis). Data coverage includes the Contiguous US, Alaska, and Hawaii. MapFruition provides geospatial, GIS/GPS, Technical, analytical, and Business solutions to Federal, State and Local Governments, and commercial clients.
