November 3, 2006, Toronto, Canada, NAC Geographic Products Inc. announced the release of the NAC Enhanced Google Maps (http://www.travelgis.com/map.asp) - an integration of the Natural Area Coding System (http://www.nacgeo.com/nacsite) with Google Maps through the Google Maps API.

Although NAC enhanced GPS receivers now can tell the location as accurately as a watch tells the time, such as Locamagic (http://locamagic.biz/), the accessibility of these devices can't be compared with Google Maps that is available to billions of web surfers. With the NAC Enhanced Google Maps, journalists can obtain the Universal Address of the exact location of any event happening in the world, and readers can use the Universal Address based location signature to directly get the local detail map without any zooming and panning.

"These shortcomings of Google Maps have disappeared on the NAC Enhanced Google Maps," said Dr. Xinhang Shen, president of NAC Geographic Products Inc., "because users can directly get the detail local map of any location and area in the world with few characters of a NAC. A NAC can be easily quoted, read, communicated and remembered. For example, if a newspaper inserts NAC: TQ PS into its news related to North Korea's nuclear test, readers need typing in only four characters on the NAC Enhanced Google Maps to get the map of the exact location without zooming and panning."

Now all news in the world can include the Universal Address based location signature for both online or printed newspapers.
