Heat Map

Hi.  I loved the heat maps.  What happened to them?  I can't find them anywhere in the Seattle area. Thanks.

LOL It's like the online version of talking to yourself when the other person has already left the room. Now where are those heat maps?

I've only looked at the heat maps a few times; and didn't even notice they were missin until a more recent thread.

I agree; Zillow needs to keep the references up to date if features are deleted, or altered from the documentation.

And I don't really see why it takes more than 8 months to put the feature back.  Not to mention, I thought many areas use Google Earth views rather than Microsoft.  I realize the need for multiple 3rd party venders, but overlaying Zillow data should be about the same.

By the way, Zillow filed this thread under the wrong catagory.

It should either be under "Z-estimates", or under "BUGS".

Who would think to look under "home ownership" to find it?

Jeez, I loved the heat maps and would love to see them back.  How hard can it be?  You have your own API that gives coordinates and everything.  Does it *have* to use Microsoft?  Please bring this functionality back already!

Alright Zillow people.  You guys are rockstars, I can feel it.  Prove it to everyone else by getting this heatmap going again.  Any other functions you're working on should be a distance 2nd place.  I'm sure there are challenges, but that's what makes great accomplishments great.  Thank you for your service.

Alright Zillow people.  You guys are rockstars I can feel it.  Now prove it to everyone else by bringing back the heat maps.  All other features you're working on should be a distant second.  I know there are challenges, but that's what makes great accomplishments great.  You have it in you, I can feel it!!!!

The real reason heat maps were dropped was that the Federal government was concerned that this function would enable redlining and housing discrimination by lenders and realtors. You didn't really think we live in a free country, did you?

Happy New Year! It's 2011, by the way. Where does the time go?

So, what are your developers saying about the Heat Map lately? Any word on when they're going to have an estimate on a timeline for retooling the ol' Heat Map?

Alternatively, has anyone decided that it may be time to, you know, break it off with all us Heat Map lovers? Stop leading us on, make it official, give back our sweater, end this sweet, sweet madness.

C'mon, how about a little Heat Map like we used to way back in 2008?

Please?

You got sweater mtcole??!?!? I am SO jealous. Does it that a big swooshy Z on it? :)

I miss the heat maps too. I know that Zillow's been busy putting a lot of content on the site, but I still hope they'll come back someday.

Zillow,  I can generate a Bing heatmap tiles for you and show you how to implement them.  All I need is a table of XYs and a value.  It would take me about 9 days to do the whole US.  Please contact me. orders(at)treadmaps.com
