RichAnalysis is developing an advanced local search engine based on commute time for searching places to go and things to do in less than 15min/30min/1h from where we are right now.
The technology integrates foot/bike/car/public transport information in cities all over the world to allow developers create intuitive apps of “I want to see something in X minutes” such as
- Show me a map of all the areas where I should look for an apartment that are within 30min of my office
- Show me all the pizza places within 15 min from where I am right now.
To figure out how accurate it is, the demo app lets you choose a place, a time limit, and a mean of transportation, and it lights up all the places on the map you could get to in that time limit: www.richanalysis.net/aroundme/sanfrancisco
