Navigation Technologies, a provider of digital maps for vehicle navigation, Internet/wireless
applications and business solutions, now offers a map of Canada's entire road network.
Navigation Technologies' NAVTECH(R) map of Canada provides customers and end users with the map data necessary for turn-by-turn routing into and throughout Canada's 10 provinces and three territories. The fully navigable map offers more 700,000 miles of roadway and 100 percent population coverage.
According to Navigation Technologies, the product features up to about 150 attributes -- such as street names, address ranges, turn
restrictions, and speed limits -- that help people efficiently route to their destinations. It also offers more than 160,000 points of interest (POIs) in up to 46 categories including ferry routes and national parks. Some
cartographic features such as major lakes and rivers are also included in the product.
"The effort involved in building the full coverage map was significant," said John MacLeod, executive vice president - Global Marketing & Strategy for Navigation Technologies. "More than 20 field analysts drove approximately 54,000 kilometers of roadway, verifying and updating information. We're tireless in our effort to offer accurate maps that reflect the reality of the roads and that effort is reflected in the products we deliver to our customers."
