Shortes are pleased to announce the launch of a new website which combines WordPress and GoogleAPI technology to offer comprehensive access to information about the businesses in 1.3 million cities around the globe. The database incorporates establishments which are recognized in the Google Place Types API. These city geographical locations are then described in a sophisticated level of detail.

The user will find the website easy to access and use. A city name is entered into the search panel. For additional details, the map can be expanded in order to see businesses, establishments and points of interest icons. Travelers who need information about banks, food establishments, car rentals, medical facilities, fuel stations, lodging, places of worship, and other locations can click on the icons individually or all related locations.

Clicking on specific locations brings up images of the street view, along with additional photos, such as choice menu items for restaurants.

Click and drag the map to digitally visit nearby locations. Alternatively, a specific address can be entered to drill down on location information. Walking and driving directions are part of the intuitive design.

The website can be used from a desktop, iPad, notebook, tablet, or mobile unit.
