NAVTEQ Delivers Enhanced Accuracy and Efficiency Using the Oracle Platform

Point Addressing and NAVTEQ Transport(TM) now available for Oracle(R) Database 11g Release 2

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- NAVTEQ, the leading global provider of digital map, traffic and location data for in-vehicle, portable, wireless and enterprise solutions, announces today that two NAVTEQ(R) products are now available for Oracle(R) Database and applications: Point Addressing and NAVTEQ Transport.

Point Addressing provides the positional accuracy that enterprise applications demand for best in class business intelligence solutions. A point address provides a point on a road for a specific address optimizing "to the door" arrival by providing address points adjusted to precise address locations.

NAVTEQ Transport data offers detailed road attributes including physical restrictions, legal restrictions, HAZMAT and specific POIs like truck stops and is specifically designed to facilitate turn by turn navigation for trucks and other large vehicles. In addition, a truck using NAVTEQ Transport can be notified of the height of an upcoming overpass or be directed away from a road that restricts certain types of vehicles. Combined, Point Addressing and NAVTEQ Transport enable both better business decisions and improve the accuracy, safety and efficiency of destination routing.

New enhancements to the geocoding and routing features of Oracle Spatial in Oracle Database 11g Release 2 include support for point addressing and truck transportation datasets. Adding Point Addressing to NAVTEQ's portfolio of mapping, geocoding, and routing products available for Oracle Database allows Oracle enterprise users to geocode addresses with the highest level of accuracy required for business intelligence, data mining, retail, service and logistics applications.

"Many Oracle applications depend on NAVTEQ maps and content to meet our customer demands for high quality and accurate solutions," said Steven Hagan, vice president of Development, Oracle. "This is another case where Oracle's spatial technologies and NAVTEQ products and services combine to provide leading edge enterprise solutions with location content that enable greater efficiency and functionality."

"NAVTEQ and Oracle have been collaborating for many years. NAVTEQ is the only provider of turn-key data solutions on the Oracle platform. We are pleased to now enable improved mapping, geocoding, and routing on the Oracle platform through the introduction of NAVTEQ Transport and Point Addressing," said Roy Kolstad, vice president, Enterprise Americas, NAVTEQ. "As the leading provider of map content solutions for fleet and work force management, NAVTEQ is excited to enable another set of strategic planning solutions for our customers across all enterprise verticals, including government, utilities, telecom and retail."
