There will be special emphasis on the NAVTEQ database, but several other mapping databases will also be discussed in the trainings. Upon completion of the project, teams will have:

  • Gathered and updated information about points of interest in their community
  • Updated incorrect points of interest in their community
  • Developed a database of points of interest in their community

  • Complete a team project to gather points of interest in your community
