OnTerra Systems Completes Web Mapping Application for New Documentary Film: "Waiting for Superman"

DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Sep 20, 2010 -- OnTerra Systems ( www.OnTerraSystems.com), a technology leader in Web mapping, fleet optimization, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) integration solutions and services, announced it has developed a Web mapping application for "Waiting for Superman" -- a new documentary film about the American education system. "Waiting for Superman" was directed and co-written by Davis Guggenheim -- an Academy Award®-winning director and producer whose work includes "An Inconvenient Truth" featuring former Vice President Al Gore (won the Oscar® for Best Documentary in 2007).

To provide ways for concerned viewers of the film to help improve America's education system, Microsoft hired OnTerra Systems to develop a Web mapping application that pulls information on teaching, education volunteer and donation opportunities into one convenient, easily searchable Web map. The Bing Education Map can be accessed at: http://www.bing.com/maps/explore/#5003/0.60124=showitems:MentorPro,GSSchools,DonorsChoose,AllForGood:embeddedmap_zoom:11:embeddedmap_latitude:47.47800064:embeddedmap_longitude:122.275001525/5872/style=auto&pid=5874

Upon accessing this link, viewers are introduced to four non-profits involved in improving American education, including:

Users of the Bing Education Map can select which non-profits interest them. This application will then automatically pull information from the non-profits selected by the user, and create a Web-based map with a series of icons highlighting education-related teaching, volunteer & donation opportunities in specified geographic areas.

"The 'Waiting for Superman' Web mapping application highlights OnTerra's technical expertise in developing easy-to-use Web maps for a wide variety of applications," said Steven Milroy, OnTerra president and co-founder.
