NAVTEQ releases first map of Indonesia

In greater Jakarta there are areas with NAVTEQ's highest coverage level – with the inclusion and verification of up to 260 road attributes.

NAVTEQ uses geographic analysts to verify for accuracy the road attributes featured in its maps that enable customers to develop turn-by-turn navigation guidance.

With the third largest concentration of mobile telecommunication devices in the Asia-Pacific region, opportunity for carriers and hand-set manufacturers to develop navigation and location-based services in Indonesia is growing.

Local geographic analysts, trained by NAVTEQ field personnel, collaborated to build the Indonesia map, providing the benefit of local knowledge and ensuring that the NAVTEQ global specification was maintained.

"Our quality and adherence to the global database specification is supported by a stringent process which includes hundreds of in-line validation rules," said Aaron Dannenbring, NAVTEQ director of product management for Asia-Pacific. "This process is designed to provide our customers with a highly accurate and reliable map of the region which can accommodate country-specific nuances."

NAVTEQ's coverage in Asia includes maps for Australia, Brunei, China, Hong Kong and Macau, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand.
