Navteq improves Mexico map data
Navteq has announced today increased coverage and content in its digital map for Mexico. The current map release includes almost 450,000 km of roads and covers the entire population. Twenty-three percent of that population is covered at NAVTEQ's highest quality levels: road network attribute verification, a specification distinctive to NAVTEQ maps.

In 2006 Navteq acquired gedas MapIT business unit in Mexico to launch its own mapping activity in the country. gedas MapIT was a division of gedas Mexico, part of gedas AG, an IT services provider owned by Volkswagen AG.

In Mexico NAVTEQ has three local offices employing up to thirty geographic analysts. Much of the database production is done locally as well in a production facility based in Leon which was part of the gedas MapIT acquisition.
