Asia News:  Tele Atlas announces agreement with BAKOSURTANAL in Indonesia

Tele Atlas has signed an agreement with BAKOSURTANAL, the government institution responsible for creating and maintaining large scale geographical maps in Indonesia.

Tele Atlas plans to incorporate BAKOSURTANAL’s digital maps within its existing Indonesia database by September 2007. The Indonesia map is part of a virtually seamless Southeast Asia map solution from Tele Atlas that includes extensive coverage of Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.

BAKOSURTANAL is the only institution designated to deliver government-approved maps of the area. The company’s maps feature 1:25,000 scale topographic data for the full Java and Bali areas and will enhance Tele Atlas’ digital map with more detailed navigable street network and extensive POI content for all major cities in Indonesia.

According to Mark Steele, chief operating officer of Tele Atlas, Asia-Pacific, Tele Atlas is the first company to receive a licence for topographical maps from BAKOSURTANAL.
