LOI, a New Way to Search Data
The Location of Interest (LOI) can be a point, a line, or a shape with a search range from 0 to 20 miles (0 to 30 kilometers). Using uFIND reduces the time spent to find the data by allowing the users to focus on their purpose. The technology has been widely implemented in many other areas, such as navigational GPS and social network.
