I don’t know about you, but when I’m sent away on assignment to some exotic and interesting city to which I’ve never been before, the thing that really gets my goat is when my in car navigation system from my deluxe car rental has terrible data and gets me lost. Oh, wait… that’s never happened to me…
Well for people who do have this problem (like Jesse and Sue), I’m sure you’ll be happy to know that Tele Atlas and Intermap have entered into a co-operative agreement to make vehicle navigation data better. What’s really cool is that the will be making both 2D and 3D data available for these systems. Look for this in California in the near future as a pilot study.
Wonder if they’ll have this in place for the ESRI Users Conference in August? I hope so, because I really look forward to hearing about how well it works from people who actually get to go!
