DeLorme Enters Worldwide Digital Map Data Market

YARMOUTH, ME - DeLorme, an industry-leader in geospatial and mapping technology, today announced its entry into the worldwide digital map data market. Building upon 33 years of cartographic publishing and GPS navigation development, DeLorme is making its US and World digital base maps available for use within third-party GIS and OEM applications. DeLorme offers two core digital topographic map data sets:

DeLorme World Base Map at 1:250,000 scale, and DeLorme North America Data Sets, including a routable street and trail network of the US.

"DeLorme brings over thirty years of cartographic excellence to GIS and OEM professionals looking for a new source of supply," said DeLorme President Dave Eshelman. "DeLorme street and topographic map data has been enjoyed by millions of satisfied DeLorme software and atlas customers, and now that same data is available for third-parties."

The DeLorme North America Data Sets provide a routable US highway, street, back road, and trail network. Detail also includes land cover, drainage and open water, plus places of interest. It is compiled from a variety of sources and includes a digital elevation model to provide topographic detail and contours. The data has a positional accuracy of +/- 5 meters CE in areas where the majority of the US population resides. Street-level detail is also available from DeLorme for Canada and Mexico.

DeLorme World Base Map data provides a seamless 1:250,000 view of the earth, combining accurate object placement and projection with a unique topographic visualization, complete with a digital elevation model for the entire earth. This data set offers a consistent level of detail and reliable horizontal accuracy of +/- 50 meters for all features worldwide, unlike previous public domain data sets. A comparison of the DeLorme dataset to competitors' digital map data of developing regions illustrates the advantages of DeLorme in currency, positional accuracy, and level of detail.

DeLorme representatives will be showcasing these new datasets at the 2009 ESRI User Conference, being held July 13-17 in San Diego, California.
