This standard wil allow users to determine whether a given map database meets the needs for their application. (A truth-in-labeling standard does NOT specify the physical format of the database or minimum performance standards.)
the focus of this document is to support the navigation applications that automotive manufacturers and suppliers are currently developing for marketplace delivery. While the focus is on in-vehicle navigation applications for motor vehicles, the document will be applicable to other ITS traveler applications using digital maps. The primary audience for this document is systems developers of passenger vehicle navigation products.
