Tele Atlas Delivers Detailed Point Addresses For Its Nationwide Street Map Database


Data Allows Digital Map Users to Locate Physical Addresses Faster and More Accurately Across the U.S.

Nov. 4, 2005, SAN FRANCISCO – Tele Atlas, a leading global geographic content provider, today announced at the company’s Partner Conference in San Francisco the availability of its new Point Address database – a powerful and accurate data set that pinpoints street addresses to a physical building, site or parcel. Tele Atlas’ Point Address data allows application developers to greatly enhance the value and usefulness of their geo-location and navigation products, and offers end-user consumers a faster, more accurate method for locating street addresses.

Tele Atlas’ Point Address database is currently being deployed in applications such as Internet mapping, flood hazard determination, property and casualty insurance, telecommunications and utility services. More than 40 million address points are available today, including those in many major urban areas, and Tele Atlas plans to provide full coverage across the U.S. for more than 120 million addresses. To ensure the highest level of accuracy, Tele Atlas incorporates address data from multiple private and public sources, and the entire database is tested and updated regularly.

“Adding point addresses is a major step forward in enhancing the precision and accuracy of digital mapping. Instead of looking for building numbers while they drive down a block, Tele Atlas map users can find the front door of their destinations without worry or hesitation,” said Mike Gerling, chief operating officer, Tele Atlas, the Americas. “We are very pleased by the favorable reception of point address data by our developer partners, and we will continue to focus our industry-leading mapping technologies and data gathering methods to help create more innovative and powerful applications.”

To further enhance the richness and completeness of digital map data, Tele Atlas today also launched its Brand Icon Program, designed to provide at-a-glance cooperative name brand recognition for a rapidly expanding roster of businesses. This program enables users of Tele Atlas map data to quickly and easily identify their favorite and most frequently used points of interest, such as food, gas, lodging and retail establishments. With the addition of these brand icons, Tele Atlas is providing another layer of information to identify business brands in an easy-to-read format.
