Sulzbach, Germany, 9 June 2006: NAVTEQ was chosen by Servingo as supplier of digital road maps for Germany’s new multi-regional navigation and information portal. NAVTEQ has updated its data on stadiums and surrounding areas specifically for the football World Cup event. Visitors of www.servingo.de will now be able to find all manner of relevant information surrounding the World Cup locations. The portal is available in German, English, Portuguese and Chinese. For the Servingo project, Intergraph delivered the “mapping & routing component” and integrated the information on the public transport systems with the World Cup locations.
Whether it’s the nearest bus stop or the special car parks at the World Cup venues, Servingo will take users where they want to go. NAVTEQ’s updated map data also contains locations of match venues along with information on road accesses, car parks and Park & Ride facilities. Even footpaths between various destinations have been mapped for pedestrian traffic highlighting the locations of the big screens set up for consumer viewing throughout the World Cup cities. For even greater added value, Servingo combines the NAVTEQ data with a routable S-Bahn, underground and tram route network enabling not only motorists but also cyclists and pedestrians to find their way.
