leading provider of worldwide digital mapping used for navigation and

The German map includes rich comprehensive navigation features and is
in line with the high quality specifications defined by AND and its
customers. The digital map offers full coverage, is fully navigable
and includes house number ranges and postal codes. The digital map

Europe on street level
"With the release of street level maps for Germany we have taken
another significant step in pursuing our ambition to complete our
coverage of Western Europe with high quality detailed maps. Earlier
this year we released similar high quality maps for Belgium,
Luxembourg and the Netherlands and in 2008 we plan to release maps
for all the remaining countries in Western Europe with the same
street level information. We believe this to be the best alternative
to Navteq and Tele Atlas available in the market." according to
