TeleAtlas MapInsight – users help improve data accuracy

TeleAtlas has a new service in limited release – MapInsight – where users can report errors in TeleAtlas’ addressing data layers. After a year of all those stories about drivers going the wrong way down one way streets; driving into streams with no bridges, etc., here is a chance for users to help improve the accuracy of at least one geographic database out there.

Also, be sure to check out the Directions Media podcast on Map Insight.

Our next contest is in honor of the Geography Awareness Week topic…Migration: The human journey. We want to see where our mascot GEOrge can end up in world as he visits you.

Entering is easy,

  2. take a picture of you holding GEOrge somewhere in the world
  3. email us your picture (contest at veryspatial dot com) along with the location of the picture (either lat/long or city/state/country)

That’s it. We will choose the grand prize winner plus two runners up randomly from the list of entries AND we will also choose what we think is the most interesting place that GEOrge migrates to. All entries must be received by Nov 8, 2006. Winners will be announced during Geography Awareness Week.
