Tele Atlas releases Indian map

Tele Atlas releases Indian map
Following the formation of a local joint venture - announced earlier this year - digital map provider Tele Atlas is now releasing its first Indian map database.

This database includes 5,463 sub-districts, 593 districts and 35 states and union territories (UTs), and includes detailed street level coverage for approximately 109,000 kilometers in eight major cities: Ahmadabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi NCR (the National Capital Region, including Faridabad, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Noida, Greater Noida, Bahadurgarh as well), Hyderabad-Secunderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai (including Mumbai, Thane, Kalyan and Navi Mumbai) and Pune.

The map covers the complete national highway network which includes expressways, national highways, and state highways and encompasses approximately 162,000 kilometers. The initial product offering also includes more than 108,000 points of interest (POIs), said Tele Atlas.

With this new map Tele Atlas will be able to compete with the local providers, especially MapmyIndia who is powering Wayfinder, General Motors and Yahoo India, as well as with its big rival NAVTEQ who has launched its first map (with six major cities) in June 2007.
