Bruce Harris & Associates Partners with Mapillary

FEBRUARY 27, 2017

CHICAGO (FEBRUARY 27, 2017)– Bruce Harris & Associates (BHA), a Geographic Information Systems company headquartered in Batavia, Illinois has signed an exclusive partnership agreement with Mapillary, a street-level imagery technology company based in Malmö, Sweden.

The partnership seeks to seamlessly integrate Mapillary’s affordable, easy-to-use photo collecting and sharing applications with BHA’s mapping products and services. BHA and Mapillary are confident this partnership will be of great benefit to clients, both in the public and private sector, in the United States and abroad.

Mapillary’s state of the art, do it yourself, street level imagery has been seamlessly integrated into BHA’s Paperless Reappraisal System allowing affordable capture and analysis of street level photography within the appraisal cycle. Bruce Harris recognized the need for quality street level imagery at a price point that all clients could access and Mapillary provided the perfect solution for this problem. Through integration into the PRS, appraisers can now collect street level photography while doing their routine field work. The integration also allows access to the photography within the PRS applications for desktop review, field analysis, and quality control. This marriage of street level imagery and field appraisal has finally put the power, and dollars, back in the appraiser’s hands.

“We are excited to offer this revolutionary appraisal tool to our clients,” said Brandon Harris, Director of Sales & Marketing for Bruce Harris & Associates. “The integration of Mapillary technology into the PRS allows appraisers to harness the power of street-level photography, and opens the door to clients whose budgets may not otherwise have allowed for this type of tool.”

“Working with Bruce Harris has been an excellent education in appraisal services,” said Janine Yoong, Head of Business Development for Mapillary. “We are delighted to see our technology applied so effectively by the industry leader to make street-level imagery more accessible and affordable to appraisers.”
