Aug 01, 2008: Tele Atlas, a global provider of digital maps and dynamic content for navigation and location-based solutions, announced it has expanded its digital map coverage in southern Europe, including near 100% coverage of Greece, Malta, Italy, Spain and Portugal, and broadened coverage of new regions to the east including Bulgaria and Turkey.
These latest updates will offer consumers traveling to popular holiday destinations in the south and throughout Europe a more enriched navigation experience, helping to find points of interest (POIs), historical sites, even updated speed limit data and more, while adventuring to and from their final destinations.
We live in a global world, where travelers are no longer bound by the dividing lines of countries drawn on a paper map. Consumers expect a seamless driving experience no matter their destination whether staying within their home countries or exploring new places,_ said Yves Muyssen, Tele Atlas Global Product Manager._
With our expanded coverage of southern Europe, we are helping our partners deliver the travel experience that consumers demand, leveraging our advanced data collection methodology to deliver fresh, accurate, reliable digital maps and dynamic content.
This expanded European coverage is part of Tele Atlas ongoing global expansion strategy, and in response to increased demand from global customers for highly detailed and accurate maps of all major countries. The company currently offers coverage in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide and will continue its expansion efforts to meet the needs of partners and travelers around the globe.
Updated digital maps and content for Greece, Malta, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Bulgaria and Turkey are available for Tele Atlas partner application developers and device manufacturers in the personal navigation, automotive, Internet and wireless markets with the latest release of Tele Atlas MultiNet and Tele Atlas MultiNav databases.
