Customers may also upgrade to NAVSTREETS Premium data for an additional cost.
"The addition of NAVSTREETS to CARTERRA Online gives our customers the capability to quickly select, purchase, and receive an entire state of NAVSTREETS," said Mindy Brown, Space Imaging's executive director of Worldwide e-Business (WEB). "When combined with 5-meter and 1-meter imagery, NAVSTREETS creates a powerful landbase to drive applications in site analysis and planning, logistics, customer relationship management, transportation, public safety and emergency management, and homeland security."
The 49 pre-packaged states NAVSTREETS datasets are a detailed, digital representation of the road networks in the United States that provides unparalleled accuracy and depth of attributes. NAVSTREETS map information is road tested for accuracy by a field force that drives thousands of miles of roadway every day to refresh and verify information. Differential GPS systems are used to collect real-time positional information about the roads, addresses and other cartographic features. The data contains streets, administrative boundaries and addresses. Each address record contains the street sign name, postal name, vanity name, aliases, 911 addressing and adopts local addressing customs such as prefixes and hyphens.
"We're excited about the opportunity to work with Space Imaging to make NAVSTREETS map data available through CARTERRA Online," said Randy Peterson, vice president and general manager of Business Solutions, North America at Navigation Technologies. "The combination of NAVSTREETS data and Space Imaging's earth imagery delivers a powerful value proposition and makes purchase both quick and easy."
