Eniro.fi is the most popular web map service in Finland and Blom’s oblique images have been an important part of this service for a few years. In 2011, Fonecta renewed their Eniro.fi service and during the process replaced the oblique viewing solution of the old Eniro.fi with BlomURBEX integration. Integration was done using BlomURBEX’s API (Application Programming Interface) tools.
The oblique imagery served from BlomURBEX provides users with a rich, interactive and highly informative view of the area of interest. For example, before setting off to a destination, users can inspect Eniro.fi’s routing services. The oblique imagery provides a broader visual understanding of the area, and helps users to easily locate themselves within their surroundings.
“We are developing all of our services to help people and companies in everyday tasks, and customer feedback is very important for us. For some years Blom has provided us with oblique images and these have always generated a lot of interest with an established user base”, states Toni Wistbacka, the Product Manager of Eniro.fi –service.
In addition to oblique and ortho imagery, several types of map layers, and routing service functionality, Fonecta’s improved Eniro.fi service also provides tools for searching contact information of companies and individuals in Finland.
