Google buys European map maker

Posted on Tuesday, December 19 2006 @ 15:11:45 CET by

Google bought map maker Endoxon today to further branch its Google Earth and Google Maps products into the European market:
The acquisition covers only Endoxon's Internet, mapping and data processing business units. Google said it will continue to service Endoxon's current customers or make arrangements to meet the company's needs, but will discontinue selling its products and services to new customers.

"We're very excited about the company's innovative mapping technology and the high quality of its engineers," Google spokesperson Megan Quinn told internetnews.com.

In a statement, Google called Endoxon a pioneer in Ajax mapping technologies.

Ajax is the technology behind the most popular local search products on the market today. When demonstrating AskCity, Ask.com's new local search product, Ask director of product management Ryan Massie told internetnews.com the multi-paned interfaces that Ajax allows reduces the need for page loads.
