World News:  NAVTEQ’s Map Reporter™ captures users’ map input

NAVTEQ has updated its online feedback tool and renamed it NAVTEQ Map Reporter™.

After eleven years and tens of thousands of update requests, the updated system is now map-based, giving users who discover potential discrepancies an easier way to provide feedback by pinpointing the exact location of the issue for possible updating of the database.

Map accuracy is the single most important indicator of a user’s satisfaction with his navigation system.

With an estimated 90 million accesses per day through navigation systems, Internet mapping sites and GIS applications, the feedback facility is an important part of how NAVTEQ identifies and prioritises map database updates.

NAVTEQ Map Reporter is offered in nine languages: Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, Swedish.

It also enables users to attach images to clarify the nature of a concern and to monitor the progress of their reports.
