HERE Maps – Helping to build our maps for a better tomorrow
Join us for a webinar on Apr 09, 2015 at 10:00 AM EDT.
Location-based devices and services are all around us—they’ve become a vital part of culture. From smart phones to navigation devices to enterprise applications, all are likely powered by a commercial map. And because the masses use these devices and services, they’re relying on the accuracy and validity of commercial maps. As a result, more and more communities and government entities are contributing their local knowledge and sharing data with commercial data vendors, in order to maximize the use and application of the data and make the map in their locale as accurate as possible.
Perhaps the most well-known and trusted commercial map vendor today is HERE, formerly known as NAVTEQ. The HERE Map is found in a wide array of places, including online map applications, in-dash and personal navigation systems and is used by companies in all walks of life, ranging from fleet management operations to emergency management. In this session Jeff Kehr from HERE will discuss their map and how it’s updated thru contributions via their community program and local GIS data acquisition channels.
