The abstract states:

Various methods, systems and apparatus for displaying content associated with a point-of-interest (“POI”) in a digital mapping system, or a region within the digital map, are disclosed. One such method may include detecting a change in the zoom level of an electronic map displayed on a computing device, determining if the new zoom-level is at a pre-determined zoom level (e.g. at maximum zoom), identifying a POI on the map, retrieving content associated with the POI (“POI content”) and displaying the POI content. The method may further include detecting a change in the zoom, or pan, of the digital map while POI content is displayed, and removing the POI content in response. Link: U.S. Patent 8504945

This patent was originally filed on 2008-02-01 which gives it a processing time of 2013 days, compared to an average processing time of 1698 in the field. has total patents. The first named inventor is Gabriel Jakobson of Alamo, CA. The primary examiner was Phenuel Salomon.

Top Measurement Patent – Displaying content associated with electronic mapping systems – US8490025

U.S. Patent 8490025 was awarded to on 2013-07-16 and describes a “Displaying content associated with electronic mapping systems.” This patent has been cited 249 times by other U.S. patents which places it in the top 500 cited patents since 2010 according to our law firm research, and makes it of the most innovative measurement patents in the field of instruments. The abstract states:

Various methods, systems and apparatus for displaying alternate content in a digital mapping system, are disclosed. One such method may include detecting a change in a zoom level of an electronic map displaying geographic content (e.g. tile-based digital map, satellite image, etc.) on a computing device (e,g. desktop/laptop, smart phone, etc, running Windows®, Linux®, Mac OS®, iOS®. Android®, etc.); determining a predetermined (eg. maximum) zoom level has been reached; retrieving alternate content, and displaying the alternate content in addition to, or in place of, some-or-all of the geographic content. The method may further include detecting a zoom-out command while the alternate content is being displayed, and in response, restoring the display of the geographic content (e.g. at the maximum zoom level and/or last state of the geographic content display prior to displaying the alternate content.) Alternate content may be associated with any portion of geographic content displayed (e.g. the portion of the geographic content visible at the maximum zoom level) and may be selected via various algorithms and be manipulate-able via map display application controls.

Top Measurement Patent – Method and system for displaying navigation information on an electronic map – US8032297

U.S. Patent 8032297 was awarded to on 2011-10-04 and describes a “Method and system for displaying navigation information on an electronic map.” This patent has been cited 269 times by other U.S. patents which places it in the top 500 cited patents since 2010 according to our law firm research, and makes it of the most innovative measurement patents in the field of instruments. The abstract states:

A mapping systems includes determining that a map object (“MO”) is outside the visible area of a map displayed; calculating the direction, distance and travel-time to the MO, creating an object vector indicator (“OVI”) and displaying the OVI on the map-display application. The OVI may be displayed on the periphery of the map-display and may be positioned in the general direction of the MO. The position of the electronic device is factored into the calculations and placement of the OVI. Link: U.S. Patent 8032297

This patent was originally filed on 2008-05-08 which gives it a processing time of 1244 days, compared to an average processing time of 1465 in the field. has total patents. The first named inventor is Gabriel Jakobson of Alamo, CA. The primary examiner was Tan Q Nguyen.
