NAVTEQ, a global provider of digital map data for vehicle navigation and location-based solutions, has recently released its first map of Brazil. Brazil is the first South American country to be mapped by NAVTEQ, launching an initiative to increase NAVTEQ’s map coverage in the South American region. Currently, NAVTEQ maps span across five continents. The map of Brazil is now available to customers for use in mapping applications.
The NAVTEQ map of Brazil provides detailed road network coverage of Brazil’s three largest cities: Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro, and Sao Paulo, including address routing capability. In addition, the map provides coverage of connector highways, allowing for routing to, from and through these three major urban areas. With over 40,000 kilometers of coverage, NAVTEQ’s map of Brazil covers approximately 12.5% (or 25.3 million) of the population. Additionally, the map offers numerous points of interest, including restaurants, hotels, museums, petrol stations, and other tourist attractions.
