United Maps strategy is to licence basemaps - from vehicle navigation market leaders like Navteq, Tele Atlas or AND â€“ and algorithmically match them with value-added cartographic data and relevant information layers thereby conflated into new data products.
United Maps generates content-rich, white-labeled, highly detailed and fully routable vector maps for mobile and pedestrian usecases.
Proprietary conflation algorithms automatically match vectorized basemaps with a high degree of precision.
Relevant content layers are added for mobile usecases and seamless multimodal navigation:
Â» public transport (subway, tram, railnetworks)
Â» pathes, walkways and trails for hiking and outdoor
Â» precise house footprints, addresses
The hyperlocal mapping products enable location-based applications, media and services for connected mobile devices, BPO, LBS and multi-modal navigation on a mobile, human scale.
United Maps operates in B2B and professional services, offering white-labeled and on-demand services.
Germany is scheduled for Q1/09, followed by Austria, Switzerland and a rollout of 200 larger European cities.
