Chicago: NAVTEQ is now offering full navigable map coverage of Greece. With this map, drivers will have access to the country’s entire network of around 320,000 kilometres of roads.
To help residents of Greece and its many visitors travel between the spectacular mountains, impressive coastline and stunning beaches, the NAVTEQ map includes a range of useful content. For example, over sixty 3D Landmarks, such as famous monuments, buildings and other historic sites have been included. Spread throughout twenty cities, the featured locations include the Acropolis in Athens, Heraklion’s Knossos, Patra’s Odeon and Agia Sofia in Thessaloniki. Athens and Thessaloniki are also available as 3D City Models: building footprints incorporating heights, depicted in detail and designed to work with the NAVTEQ map to help orientation, by providing a visual impression of the surrounding area.
In addition to NAVTEQ’s map, customers will receive an extensive range of Points of Interest (POI) in categories such as hotels, railway stations, shops, restaurants and petrol stations. All POIs are geo-referenced to the NAVTEQ map in order to maximise the routing precision of navigation devices.
The latest map for Greece is a part of NAVTEQ’s ongoing efforts to Eastern Europe and the Balkan Peninsula where NAVTEQ is already providing 100% coverage of the population in the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia. NAVTEQ is also planning to expand coverage for Albania, Belarus, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Russia, Romania, Serbia, Turkey and the Ukraine.
