California, USA, 7 August 2006: Tele Atlas has announced the availability of StreetMap Premium Europe, a database containing compressed digital map data of more than 20 European countries built to ESRI’s Smart Data Compression (SDC) specifications.
StreetMap Premium Europe makes the process of loading and managing large digital data sets faster for developers creating routing, dispatch, navigation and itinerary generation applications. It allows developers around the world to load the map database as a convenient, single data source without going through a series of preparatory steps such as decompression, extraction and merging of layers.
StreetMap Premium Europe includes 7.5 million kilometers of roads, house numbers for 350 million inhabitants and nearly two million points of interest (POIs) covering a range of European countries. It works with the latest versions of ESRI’s ArcGIS, Network Analyst and ArcIMS Route Server products, and complements StreetMap Premium North America, released at the end of 2005.
