The International Map Industry Association bestowed a Silver Award on Maps.com at its annual conference this week in Denver, CO.
Industry judges recognized the innovative use of location-based technology combined with high quality content in Field Trip Library - an educational tool aimed at K-12 teachers and students.
Representatives from the company including Owner and Chairman John Glanville and President Bill Spicer were on hand to receive the prestigious award.
Field Trip Library is a product launched by Maps.com in the summer of 2014 which is already in use by thousands of schools across the nation. Taking complex subjects and explaining them in a geographic and chronological context, the online product has proved a hit with teachers and students alike.
