QuantQuote's revolutionary TickMAP architecture allows for fully automated corporate event tracking. TickMAP compensates for symbol changes due to spinoffs, mergers, and acquisitions. It also keeps track of dividends and splits allowing for instant adjustment of unadjusted data and vice versa. QuantQuote minute data packages, with the exception of the complete package come standard with all TickMAP adjustments.
The complete package, and some larger custom orders do not come with TickMAP adjustments already performed. Instead, the TickMAP software is provided with the order to perform adjustments on the fly. The TickMAP C++ code is very efficient and easy to use, allowing for symbol mapping and dividend/split adjustment to be done in customer code with minimal overhead. A TickMAP sample code which performs all adjustments on minute data files is also included.

All QuantQuote second and tick resolution intraday stock data come in the QuantEDGE advanced compression format. Minute resolution data is provided in regular text format due to its smaller size. C++ QuantEDGE libraries perform on-the-fly decompression in memory and automatic data loading in a single step for unparalleled performance and ease of use. QuantEDGE is also fully integrated and compatible with TickMAP.
QuantEDGE allows for a 92% reduction in data file size, greatly reducing storage requirements. The binary format combined with decompression in memory actually makes the loading of QuantEDGE format data faster than loading uncompressed text data despite the added processing time from decompression 1. The libraries are platform independent and can be run on most Unix/Linux/OSX systems. QuantEDGE has also been used successfully on Windows 2.
