Instant Checkmate, one of the fastest growing Internet startups announced that its background check reports will now include a Google Maps feature in all interactive background reports. This recent addition allows users to view satellite images of the current address for any individual in the U.S. who was the subject of a personal criminal background check through Instant Checkmate.This new feature is not an add on, and will be included in all standard reports.
Google Maps is a web mapping application that can be embedded on third party websites. These enhanced street view images from Google Maps provide Instant Checkmate users with a visual aid that enables them to explore a particular neighborhood through 360-degree street-level imagery.
Instant Checkmate aggregates electronic data such as sex offender status, local demographic information, aliases, birth, death, and marriage certificates, arrest records, convictions, possible relatives, and much more from a number of databases at both the local and federal level, as well as independent sources. This information is then used to compile background checks on individuals. Prior to the addition of Google images, the reports only sourced information from written records. In a statement issued by a company spokesperson, the satellite imagery is meant to give users a more informative, dynamic experience when using the product.
