Europe News:  Masternaut Three X signs 3-year deal with Microsoft Virtual Earth

The contract is an extension to an ongoing relationship between the two organisations.

According to Masternaut Three X managing director, Martin Port, the company's customer base will expand to more than 100,000 subscribers within the next three years.

The latest release of the Microsoft Virtual Earth platform incorporates up-to-date traditional street mapping with aerial photography enhanced with bird's-eye view images and 3D photo-realistic views of buildings and landscapes.

The platform also offers advanced location-based services including optimised driving directions, proximity queries and customisable map windows.

Masternaut enhances the platform with many features, including real-time traffic data, congestion and low emission zone alerts, access to low bridge and narrow road information.

"Masternaut's fleet management solution demonstrates that the investments Microsoft has made in Virtual Earth – such as scalability, imagery and the development platform – are delivering practical benefits to companies," said Eric Jorgensen, Microsoft's general manager of Mapping & Location Services.
