NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 18, 2003--Kivera, a leader in location-based products and services, and Tele Atlas, a worldwide leading provider of digital map databases and leading location content aggregator, today announced a strategic alliance to leverage the power of Kivera technology with the reach of Tele Atlas' North American map and traffic data.
