Blom signs global 3D agreement with Tele Atlas

Blom and Tele Atlas will work together on the development and delivery of 3D city maps and other features using Blom's imagery and 3D map components.

Tele Atlas will add Blom data to its existing 3D database to rapidly expand its offering and will be able to license Blom imagery products to its customers. In addition, Tele Atlas will gain access to Blom's imagery databases to update its existing maps.

According to Tele Atlas CEO Bill Henry, demand for 3D maps on PNDs and in local search applications is rising, as consumers want more realistic views of what is around them. He added that Blom's vast library of 3D imagery will enable Tele Atlas to deliver fully three-dimensional products in more than 250 cities worldwide next year.
