Tele Atlas, a leading global geographic content provider, today announced it has reached a major European
milestone by delivering complete digital map coverage of Western Europe. With the addition of detailed Ireland

moon 10 times. Within Western Europe, the database now reaches more than 386 million inhabitants, includes 1.7
million standard points-of-interest (POIs) and nearly 90 percent of all house numbers across the region.

In addition, Tele Atlas has made significant advancements in Eastern Europe, incorporating data from the Baltic
states (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania), and from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Russia. The regional
additions bring Tele Atlas total coverage to more than 536,000 kilometers in Central and Eastern Europe. Data
for all of Europe features extensive interconnecting road networks augmented by detailed street networks for
many of the main population centres.

„With the completion of Western Europe and our rapid expansion in Eastern Europe, 43 countries are now fully
represented in our extensive European digital map database,“ said Jack Reinelt, Managing Director and COO of
Tele Atlas Europe, Middle East and Africa. „This milestone is just one example of our continued commitment to
provide detailed and accurate geographic content to our partners and customers building high end local search
and navigation solutions.
