Premier Map Provides Seamless Coverage From the Middle East to Eastern and Western Europe
"The addition of the Turkey map provides a seamless link between Europe and the Middle East where we have extensive coverage," stated Mary Hardwick, Vice President of Product Management Europe, Middle East and Africa. "Because NAVTEQ provides maps in standard formats using a single data specification, customers will be able to easily integrate the Turkey map into their regional solutions providing users of navigation, wireless location-based, and fleet optimization systems a continuous corridor of coverage from Oman to Portugal and Norway."
"Geographic analysts, deployed from Europe working along side local residents, assured that the map was built to the NAVTEQ global specification that incorporated local nuances," reported Christian Heyne, NAVTEQ Country Manager. "With our NAVTEQ team applying the NAVTEQ specification, our customers have the confidence that the map of Turkey will work in the same environment as any other NAVTEQ map they are currently using."
