HERE, formerly NAVTEQ, is a global leader in the mapping and location intelligence business. Rooted in almost three decades of experience in cartography, their vision is simple: offer the world's best maps and location experiences across multiple screens and operating systems. Our maps power 175 million devices worldwide. Whether you are on your phone, your computer, or in your car, our goal is to provide you with the most advanced and accurate maps available so you can explore your world with ease and comfort. As a result, more and more communities and government entities are contributing their local knowledge and sharing information with commercial data vendors, in order to maximize the use and application of the data and make the map in their locale as accurate as possible. And with HERE’s new Map Creator program, it’s now even easier for people to contribute location experiences and promote your community to help make the HERE Map even better.
In this session Chad Klein and Christian Cunningham from HERE will discuss their maps and how they are updated through local sources, GIS data collection, and via the community program.
