  • Patent number: 9865034
    Abstract: A geospatial mapping system can access a geospatial layer data set for a first geographic area defined by a first presentation level, and provide the geospatial layer data set for the first geographic area to a client device to present a visual rendering of the first geographic area. The geospatial mapping system can receive a request to utilize an advanced feature set on a subset of geospatial artifacts located within the first geographic area, and promote, to the geospatial layer data set, an additional geospatial artifact data set for the subset of geospatial artifacts, yielding an updated geospatial layer data set for the first geographic area. The geospatial mapping system can provide the updated geospatial layer data set to the client device to provide the advanced feature set for interacting with the subset of geospatial artifacts located within the first geographic area.

    Abstract: Techniques for transmitting and presenting content may be provided. In particular, systems and methods are provided for allowing third parties (e.g., “publishers”) to specify content items to be transmitted, via channels, to a plurality of devices (e.g., subscriber devices). Content items can include, e.g., product information, promotion details or institution-level notifications and can dynamically change in time. In one instance, a publisher can periodically update content (e.g., images, videos or text) based on, e.g., current or future promotions, new product launches or recent events. One or more content items can then be transmitted via a channel to devices of subscribers of the channel (e.g., simultaneously or asynchronously). When inactivity is detected at a particular subscriber's device, the device can present one or more content items from the channel. In some instances, the channel's content item(s) is sequential to or interleaved with content items from another channel.

  • Patent number: 7856407
    Abstract: A system and method links one or more disparate community awareness management (CAM) datasets for a community awareness program (CAP) with one or more spatial layers to create linked CAM datasets. One or more data attributes common to a CAM dataset and a spatial layer are identified, and the link is defined between the CAM dataset and the spatial layer. The spatial layer and the linked CAM dataset then may be queried using a single input query. Features from the spatial layer and features from the linked CAM dataset that match the query are generated for display. In one embodiment, a system and method manage CAP assets, transactions, interest areas for the CAP, and buffer areas for the CAP. An audience utility enables entering and maintaining audience data for the CAP. A journal utility enables making journal entries for one or more audience members, CAP assets, transactions, and/or other CAM data. A link document utility enables linking one or more documents to CAM data.

  • Publication number: 20100241583
    Abstract: State information in a publish and subscribe system is retained. A state publication is received from a publisher for a topic with one or more delta publications. The state publication and the one or more delta publications are used to keep track of a current state associated with the topic. It is determined that a subscriber has connected to a topic and information pertaining to the current state is sent to the subscriber. This equates to either a list comprising the state publication and subsequent delta publications or a single publication. Such a single publication is maintained by the system and comprises a state publication updated by one or more subsequent delta publications.
