October 15, 2001
IntelliWhere, Hoofddorp, Netherlands, a division of Intergraph Mapping and GIS Solutions and Terra Map Server GmbH, Dortmund, Germany, signed a strategic partnership agreement to increase the deployment of advanced location-based services by European businesses. The agreement will allow businesses to build and deploy sophisticated, high-performance location-based services. The service provided by the partnership includes the delivery of many high-volume LBS transactions such as locating addresses, displaying maps and more. IntelliWhere’s LocationServer software and Terra Map Server’s geodata Web portal, www.terramapserver.com, will provide the foundation for the service. LocationServer provides advanced georeferencing, shortest path routing, points of interest searches and other functions. Terra Map Server provides hardware infrastructure and more than 10 terabytes of European geodata. Combining these with the NAVTECH navigation database, basic geographic data of state and regional authorities and the ANDES raster map database, Terra Map Server will deliver services to a range of European countries.
