Tele Atlas expands coverage of Argentina and Uruguay

Tele Atlas has announced it has expanded its digital map coverage in Argentina and Uruguay, developed jointly with Datamap, a local provider of digital maps and mapping solutions.

The new Tele Atlas maps include additional content such as points of interest (POIs) and are immediately available to all Tele Atlas personal navigation, wireless, Internet, automotive and enterprise customers worldwide.

Through an agreement announced in 2008, Tele Atlas works with its partner Datamap to deliver maps of navigable roads in Argentina and Uruguay. With coverage across Argentina through neighboring Uruguay, Tele Atlas maps enable seamless product development and cover the major road networks of the entire country, from the border of Argentina to popular vacation spot Jose Ignacio.

Tele Atlas maps of Argentina now cover 57 percent of the population and offer nearly 25,000 POIs. The maps include coverage of more than 208,000 kilometers of navigable roads, including the country’s major road network and street level coverage in 147 cities across the country, including Buenos Aires, Cordoba, La Plata, Mendoza, Rosario and Salta.

Building on its coverage for Uruguay, the Tele Atlas map has expanded to now cover more than cover 13,000 kilometers, including Uruguay’s complete major road network. The maps of Uruguay cover 42 percent of the population and also feature coverage of major metropolitan and holiday areas, including Colonia, Jose Ignacio, Maldonado, Montevideo and Punta del Este.

The expanded Latin American coverage is part of Tele Atlas’ ongoing global expansion strategy and is designed to meet increasing demand from global customers for highly detailed and accurate maps of all major countries. Tele Atlas currently offers maps covering 90 countries around the world, including fully navigable maps of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Uruguay. The company will continue to expand its Latin American offering in the future with map coverage planned to be available later this year.
