GDT Selected by Yahoo! to Provide Street and Address Information for New Yahoo! Maps

Geographic Data Technology, Inc., a developer of premier map databases, today announced that Yahoo! Inc., a leading global Internet communications, commerce and media company, will incorporate GDT street and address information into its new Yahoo!® Maps web site (https://maps.yahoo.com).

Yahoo! will use GDT’s Dynamap®/Transportation North America database and geocoding tools to provide map display and driving directions for users visiting Yahoo! Maps directly, or through other Yahoo! properties that use the mapping technology across the network. Compiled from a vast network of sources, Dynamap/Transportation provides street and address coverage, highly accurate one-way and restricted turn information, accurate representation of limited access highways, preferred routing names, and exit point layers.
