NAVTEQ, the leading global provider of maps, traffic and location data enabling navigation, location-based services and mobile advertising around the world, announced today the signing of agreements with several Esri distributors to increase its distributor network in Latin America. These agreements strengthen NAVTEQ’s offering in the region by providing a broader set of users with easy access to GIS solutions comprised of NAVTEQ® map data and Esri software and tools.
NAVTEQ’s distribution network will expand to include Esri distributors such as Procalculo Prosis in Colombia, Aeroterra in Argentina and Esri–Venezuela. These distributors will be added to NAVTEQ’s existing distribution network made up of Esri–Chile, Telemática in Peru and SIGSA in Mexico.
