Aliso Viejo, CA and Lebanon, NH, April 20, 2010 — Tele Atlas, the world leader in high quality digital maps and dynamic content, and Telogis, the platform for location intelligence, today announced an agreement whereby Telogis’ geospatial platform will leverage Tele Atlas® MultiNet and Tele Atlas® Logistics databases. Through the agreement, Telogis will incorporate Tele Atlas digital maps and content to provide more accurate navigation, routing, location information and vehicle tracking solutions. The same Tele Atlas maps of North America that will power these solutions were recently rated highest for quality and reliability in certified tests.
