Chicago, USA, 7 August 2006: NAVTEQ has collaborated with ESRI to begin shipping a new dataset for ESRI StreetMap Premium, the latest street database for use with ESRI’s ArcGIS software products. ESRI’s StreetMap Premium data includes NAVTEQ’s comprehensive NAVSTREETS map database for the United States, Canada and Europe.
NAVSTREETS is a comprehensive collection of navigable attributes, including turn-by-turn directions, the latest street geometry, address information, and water features. NAVSTREETS extensive database provides end-users a high level of accuracy and helps ESRI customers find locations and route efficiently to their destinations.
NAVTEQ’s NAVSTREETS data is designed to help ArcGIS users easily add one of the highest quality and most current street databases to ESRI applications such as ArcGIS Desktop (ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo), ArcIMS RouteServer, and ArcGIS Server. In addition, a data option is available for use with the ArcGIS Network Analyst extension.
NAVTEQ’s NAVSTREETS data is available in ESRI Smart Data Compression (SDC) format, and the entire North American dataset comes on one DVD. It can be used to geocode addresses and generate routes and driving directions, as a cartographic display, as a backdrop for plotting customer locations, or as a basemap.
“ESRI provides high-quality GIS software which enables industry-leading location solutions to reach commercial and government customers. NAVTEQ’s NAVSTREETS database will help to support the map data requirements of ESRI’s ArcGIS desktop and server family of products,” stated Roy Kolstad Vice President – Business and Government Solutions, NAVTEQ.
