Asia News: Tele Atlas and MappointAsia form JV in Thailand

Tele Atlas has announced a joint venture with MappointAsia Thailand to form Tele Atlas (Thailand).

The Bangkok-based JV will operate as an independent entity focused on delivering a complete navigable digital map database of Thailand for in-car, portable, Internet, and wireless navigation systems and applications.

Tele Atlas Thailand will focus on the production, maintenance, upgrade and commercialisation of a navigable database, which is designed to be fully aligned with Tele Atlas’ global map offering and seamlessly integrated in the Southeast Asia regional solution.

The joint venture will be immediately operational. It will also serve as a regional competency centre for the company to support all operations and coverage expansion for Tele Atlas in the Southeast Asia region.

Tele Atlas has also unveiled its first mobile mapping van in Southeast Asia in downtown Singapore, the second vehicle in the company’s Asia Pacific fleet.

“Tele Atlas has strong confidence in the market potential of Southeast Asia, and the launch of our Mobile Mapping technology in Singapore will help us further develop our global technology platform with rich road network attributes and visual enhancements,” said Tele Atlas Asia-Pacific chief operating officer Mark Steele.

“The formation of Tele Atlas Thailand further strengthens our unparalleled operational footprint in Southeast Asia, which serves as a key area in the automotive market and has strong potential in the burgeoning wireless market.”
