Tele Atlas and NAVTEQ announce new maps

Tele Atlas has unveiled expanded coverage of Ukraine, which includes coverage of the country’s complete major and interconnecting road networks encompassing more than 250,000 kilometers of roadways. The release extends the company’s European maps, which cover 44 countries and more than 10.6 million kilometers, and marks the company’s first navigable map of the Ukraine.

The new map includes navigable street network coverage for turn-by-turn and location-based applications and covers nearly 40 percent of the country’s population. It also features street level coverage in 46 major cities across the country, including Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk, Kharkiv, Kiev, Lviv and Odessa, as well as all regional centers.

NAVTEQ has announced map coverage expansion with Intermediate Maps for Nigeria and Kenya. Covering 140,000 kilometers of road in Nigeria, 60,000 kilometres in Kenya, and a combined 23,000 Points of Interest (POIs), these maps will enable enhanced navigation functionality.

Intermediate Maps are a separate class of map data provided by NAVTEQ to support customers who are interested in introducing LBS and navigation applications in emerging markets. The Intermediate Map offering is an important tool for customers who need a faster time-to-market in key regions of the world and desire the same exceptional service and support they have come to expect from NAVTEQ.

Based on third party source data deemed by NAVTEQ to be the highest quality available, Intermediate Maps do not adhere to the same specifications or required verification as the company’s flagship product, the NAVTEQ map.
