Address lookup functionality

Today we have released the new 1.17 version with several improvements and a new interesting functionality for address lookup.

Now, seekkers can search for an address or business, or even any location they know, and Seekky will offer them the list with the matching results. Another new cool feature is that you have a new bird's view available for each entry of the list.

This means that you can have a closer look at the address you are searching for just one-click away. As an example, you can have a look to the London eye. Click in the bird's view link of the London eye entry and move around the resulting image.

The imagery is Microsoft Virtual Earth courtesy and is available for about 250 major cities around the world. If your city it's not included, be patient, they are working hard to include all major north american and european cities with bird's view imaginery...If you don't want to wait, you can always use the satellite view link, a higher point of view, but on the contrary available all over the world...

You can add the address lookup functionality to your page. Just add a search form with some fields and you are done...

For those places where bird's view is not available, if you click in the link, you'll see an aerial map of the area with zoom capabilities.

You can have a look to the preview window where you can see a Google Maps view with severals markers pointing interesting places around your search...
