Chamber and Community Cartography Put Brooklyn Businesses on the Map


What does your business do? When and Why did you join the Brooklyn Chamber?

Halcrow (formerly Community Cartography) provides detailed information about anything that can be put on a map—names;  the locations of businesses, residences, or public facilities;  the number of riders on a subway line;  the number of school age children in a census tract;  zoning, land use, parks/open space;  business improvement districts, local development corporations, economic development zones;  property information, and much more.  We make printed, poster-size maps for developers (for instance, Chamber Member Forest City Ratner) and nonprofits (such as the Fort Greene Information Exchange).  We make Web applications that provide interactive mapping and data-querying.  And we supply stand-alone software applications loaded with digital data from our warehouse, which offers  the region’s richest supply of geographic information.

We joined the Chamber in 2000 when we had the opportunity to work with the Chamber to inaugurate ibrooklyn.com, for which we have provided the well-known “Brooklyn Eats” page as well as all the map pages at Brooklyn Maps and Data.  Our newest venture is the ibrooklyn.com Premium Real Estate Data page, which provides an unparalleled trove of detailed information that is searchable by address or block and lot or by user-specified search criteria.

How did the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce help your business?

The exposure we get from our Brooklyn Maps and Data page at ibrooklyn.com (and from referrals from Chamber staff) helps clients and potential clients find us.  We are proud to work with Member clients such as the Myrtle Avenue Development Corporation, Forest City Ratner, and the Pratt Institute and look forward to working with many more Chamber Members in the future.  Chamber Members receive a 10% discount from the currently published price of any Halcrow Maps product!
