What we do:
Snapspans maintains and updates a database of businesses location and contact information, including name, address, phone number or "NAP", URL, industry, and more.
Snapspans began in the mid-2000's to fill a need: when so many business directory sites were overpromoting with heavily ad-laden pages and slim or incorrect data, a lean, aesthetic design without the boilerplate (and spam) seemed likely to excel in search engine results.
Since then, the semantic web and related big data research and tools have opened new frontiers for entity resolution and networked relationships.
Snapspans is working to add more data from public sources, crawling the web, user submissions, and feedback reports.
