XATA Corporation says it is adding improved digital mapping software to its XATANET on-demand fleet operations software. The upgrade will provide XATANET end users with more high-quality data, including larger and more dynamic maps, to help better track exact vehicle location and improve route details. Available in November 2008, the enhanced mapping capability is part of the XATANET 4.3 release.
XATA will leverage maps from Microsoft Virtual Earth, which pulls geographic data directly from the Web for up-to-the-minute vehicle tracking.
Mapping enhancement highlights include draggable maps, which enable users to quickly pan and see a broader view of the highlighted geographical area; increased customization, which allows users to include information specific to delivery routes; and improved GPS positioning controls for more accurate delivery and pickup location information.
