NAVTEQ a global provider of digital map data for vehicle navigation and location-based solutions, has been selected by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts through an agreement with American Digital Cartography, Inc. (ADCi), to provide an enterprise-wide license that allows Commonwealth-wide use of NAVTEQ base maps and associated address range data. ADCi is an authorized distributor for NAVTEQ data to state, county and local governments in the US. The agreement enables the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to use the NAVTEQ NAVSTREETS(TM) data at any of the over 300 agencies that are part of the enterprise-wide license.
The license also includes a maintenance agreement with the Massachusetts Statewide Emergency Telecommunications Board (SETB), a public safety agency in the Commonwealth. Under the agreement, ADCi will provide quarterly updates to the statewide NAVTEQ NAVSTREETS(TM) data. This unique agreement provides SETB with the ability to report any suspected errors or omissions in the data, which will be investigated by the NAVTEQ field technicians on the ground and corrected as appropriate using GPS-based field data collection techniques.
