- Q. Can anyone run a news release?

- Q. What is the premium news release service all about?
A. We've taken advantage of our experience and contacts to provide a premium news posting option. For a nominal fee, your news release gets "top billing", we'll provide contact information, hyperlinks to your website, and we'll forward your news release to our own personal database of GIS, LBS, and geospatial media and high-tech journalists. Generally, news submitted using this option gets picked up on and run by a number of other online and paper publications.
