High quality navigable map supports development of navigation and location-based applications.
NAVTEQ has announced today at the ESRI Latin America User Conference availability of the NAVTEQ map of Colombia. With this new coverage, a northern Andean corridor exists for NAVTEQ customers to expand offerings of automotive grade quality applications for vehicle navigation, transport and logistics industries applications and wireless solutions.
Included in this initial map is coverage representing 70 percent of the road network in Colombia and over 230 municipalities. Approximately 15,000 Points of Interest (POIs) available in the map database, enable customers to create applications that allow for destination selection via a POI look-up. An added benefit is that the POIs are organized by category supporting customers’ efforts to create applications that allow for simple searches when the POI name is not known.
“Colombia is evolving as a growing market for our customers who develop navigation and location-based solution applications,” stated Helder Azevedo, general director for Latin America for NAVTEQ. “Providing them with fully navigable maps enables them to develop applications that will meet today’s needs and position them to quickly move into more advanced navigation functionality as the market matures.”
