Tele Atlas North America Inc. Launched its North American Database

Tele Atlas North America Inc. launched a new turn-by-turn capable map database that combines significantly improved accuracy and coverage with direct traffic-linked map and real-time traffic feed. In the new Tele Atlas North American database, 56 percent of the U.S. population is covered in a fully attributed, turn-by-turn capable format. Tele Atlas has 100 percent street network coverage, including image-attributed road miles for 80 percent of the U.S. population, so that virtually all roads covered will have a better representation of real world geometry, connectivity and positional accuracy. The map database also offers geocoding covering more than 120 million addresses with more than 45 million address ranges. Tele Atlas’ information exceeds the National Map Accuracy Standard of 12 meters or better for more than 80 percent of the U.S. population, with the majority of observations within 5- to 7-meter accuracy.
