Telogis Responds - How will the Navteq / Nokia NN4D shutdown affect developers? E-mail
GISuser Feature Articles - Mobile GIS, GPS and Location Services (LBS)
Written by glenn   
02 February 2012

An interesting update on the Telogis blog as the company continues to court developers who were involved with the NN4D program supporting mobile developers. Telogis is encouraging developers to stick with Navteq and they have resources to help.

From the Telogis blog...

Despite the closure of the NN4D developer network, NAVTEQ (now owned by Nokia) will continue to be a leading provider of map data around the globe. A recent deal with Russian search giant Yandex underscores that NAVTEQ map data is a strong player as a supplier of location data. Yandex joins other search engines, Bing and Yahoo, that use NAVTEQ map data to power their location-based applications.

NAVTEQ is also used by a huge range of specialist industries, from transport and logistics to wireless consumer devices and vehicle manufacturers, with recent statistics showing it is used on around 45 million devices.

There is no doubt that NAVTEQ as a company and its field of supplying map data has a strong and progressive future. Unfortunately for NN4D, NAVTEQ’s own developer network, they were shutdown, and for some in the industry, this wasn’t a huge surprise with Nokia having its own developer network and the connection between Nokia, NAVTEQ, and Microsoft Bing creating uncertainty and confusion, both internally and externally. While this is not great news for the team at NN4D, we are confident their skills will be picked up by other companies in the LBS niche.

What options do developers who were part of the NN4D network have? Will they be able to continue developing on a platform supporting NAVTEQ map data?
