What is the main difference between Pro and Premium subscription?

Pro subscriptions are focused on providing customization options in the SparkMap Map Room. With a Pro subscription you can add your own data to a map, access advanced mapping tools, and customize the map colors and symbols. Premium subscriptions are focused on providing customization options in the SparkMap Community Assessment while also providing access to the advanced Map Room features. Premium subscriptions provide exclusive indicators AND custom geographies. 

Do you support multiple licenses or for organizations?
