Croydon interactive map goes online

A world leading interactive touch screen map developed by local firm Quintessence that allows people to view and explore Croydon's multi-billion pound regeneration developments has been made available online.

White Label has arranged for the touchscreen Croydon Interactive Map to be made available for Windows PC's or tablets through the Develop Croydon Forum website.

The map is based on software Quintessence – a Develop Croydon Forum partner - developed for a large screen interactive display, which has showcased Croydon regularly at DC Forum events in the UK and overseas, including the MIPIM international property fair in Cannes, France.

The new free-to-use, internet version was released on Friday, June 26, while a fully interactive version, which can be used by Croydon businesses for marketing meetings and opportunities, is available for DC Forum Partners to buy at an annual cost starting from £250.

"The web version of the development map will be a public facing extension of the Croydon Forum Interactive Map, which will allow people to view the regeneration opportunities in the town," said Quintessence managing director Rob Bosher.

"Develop Croydon Forum and local businesses have benefited from our innovative, multi-touch solutions for everything from community consultation, to exhibition events, to investor launches in the UK and Overseas and as a leading technology company we are proud to assist Croydon in its future growth.

"The technology also helped Croydon promote itself as a technology hub. For example Boris Johnson used the system at MIPIM, enabling him to quickly visualise the growth ambitions of Croydon, which attracted national media attention."

Quintessence, which was founded by Rob in 2009, has pioneered new experiential presentation software solutions for devices, and manufactures multi touch hardware that enables groups of people to collaboratively present, visualise, communicate simultaneously.
