NAVTEQ announced their release of navigable map coverage in Indonesia. The initial NAVTEQ map of Indonesia includes over 250,000 km of road network. The greater Jakarta coverage includes areas of NAVTEQ’s highest coverage level, inclusion and verification of up to 260 road attributes. NAVTEQ provides up to 260 road attributes in its maps, and uses geographic analysts to verify them for accuracy, enabling customers to develop turn-by-turn navigation guidance. With the third largest concentration of mobile telecommunication devices in the Asia Pacific region, opportunity for carriers and hand-set manufacturers, to develop navigation and location-based services in Indonesia is growing.
“NAVTEQ recognizes that our customers need a proven quality map to be successful”, stated Rafay Khan, vice president of Business Development for Asia Pacific. “We are supporting their efforts by building the country to the same global specification and processes, as our other country maps, enabling them to rapidly develop the services and products their customers are demanding.”
Local geographic analysts, trained by NAVTEQ field personnel collaborated to build the Indonesia map providing the benefit of local knowledge and ensuring that the NAVTEQ global specification was maintained.
“Our quality and adherence to the global database specification is supported by a stringent validation process that includes hundreds of in-line validation rules. This process is designed to provide our customers with a highly accurate and reliable map of the region that can accommodate country-specific nuances,” reported Aaron Dannenbring, NAVTEQ director of Product Management for Asia Pacific.
