Miami Herald NAVTEQ Profile

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a newspaper article profiling one or the other mapping data company — i.e., NAVTEQ and/or Tele Atlas — with a focus on its local surveying efforts, but here’s a new one from the Miami Herald, which looks at NAVTEQ. (I can only imagine the PR war behind the scenes.) These are usually similar to one another; one twist this time is the difficulty cited in getting access to gated communities.
