Ticketmaster Unveils New Web 2.0-style Seat Maps

Los Angeles-based Ticketmaster, which is the biggest provider of online ticket sales services for sports, entertainment, and other events, said today that it has launched a beta of a new, interactive seat mapping tool. The new, Web 2.0-style tool allows users to view visual maps of venues, and use interactive features to narrow down the types of tickets they want to buy by location, price, and other options. Ticketmaster said the new tool is available in beta for specific venues, including the San Antonio Spurs, Edmonton Oilers, Phoenix Suns, Orlando Magic, and others. The firm said it will be rolling out the new maps throughout the upcoming year.
