The NAVTEQ Map provides navigable map coverage for over 90 countries and territories worldwide. With over 1,100 geographic analysts driving the roads, a content stream that has included over 80,000 data sources, and over 2.4 million map changes daily, managing map content that includes over 22 million miles of roads and 44 million points of interest has been an interesting challenge.
This session describes how Oracle Spatial was used to help dramatically transform the NAVTEQ Map in terms of coverage and content during the period between 2007 and 2010 as the NAVTEQ Map underwent unprecedented expansion. It describes how Oracle Spatial was used to address the massive ingest requirement to help the NAVTEQ Map development team analyze the relationships of content acquired from multiple sources, to evaluate the quality of the content, and to judge the integration effort required to bring the content into conformity with NAVTEQ Map standards for quality and positional accuracy.
