Survey of India and Tele Atlas announce strategic agreement

The government of India has formally approved the strategic agreement between the Survey of India (SOA) – the national surveying and mapping organisation, and Tele Atlas Kalyani India – formerly Kalyani Net Ventures, a joint venture between the Kalyani Group and Tele Atlas.

With this agreement, Tele Atlas Kalyani India becomes the first Value Added Reseller (VAR) of India's digital maps.

The agreement allows Tele Atlas Kalyani India to release the first SOA-approved digital maps and custom map content within the public domain for commercial use in a range of navigation and location-based solutions in the mobile, Internet, automotive, personal navigation system and enterprise markets.

The current release of navigable maps created by Tele Atlas Kalyani India are the first ever to be screened and approved for public release by the SOI, in full compliance with government regulations and the provisions of the National Mapping Policy.
