October 2016 - Collins Bartholomew release World MidScales Explorer version 16.1

Oct 12, 2016 -- Publisher and map data provider Collins Bartholomew has announced the release of v16.1 of its World MidScales Explorer vector map data product. This release represents a major improvement on previous versions, with the product now being delivered as one seamless dataset instead of in three separate parts. In addition, Pakistan and Indonesia have also been added to the growing list of countries covered.

World MidScales Explorer is a continuously maintained dataset with hundreds of changes made each year. In line with Collins Bartholomew’s focus on authoritative content, the most noteworthy changes include improved 1st-order boundary alignments in Libya and amendments to 2nd-order administrative boundaries in Italy. Updates to 1st-order administrative region names in France, which came into effect on 30th September 2016, have also been made. Other notable changes include updates to names in Ukraine due to de-communization laws and general updates to names in Cyprus, Georgia, and Hong Kong.

Collins Bartholomew’s Digital Sales Manager John Allen said ‘this release of World MidScales Explorer is the most significant since we started licensing this product a few years ago. The creation of a single seamless dataset and the addition of two new countries is a marked improvement on previous versions and demonstrates our desire and commitment to offer the best product to our customers that we can’.

Over the coming 12 months Collins Bartholomew will continue to focus on extending the coverage of World MidScales Explorer in parts of the world that will be most beneficial to customers. Countries most likely to be added next are Burkina Faso, Papua new Guinea, Algeria and Tunisia. A significant update to the transportation network in Europe is also scheduled to take place.
