We continued our improvements of city streets in South Africa with a focus on rectifying the huge addition of streets that was added in the previous two versions. We also addressed route calculation issues as reported by our users, most of which was associated with the large addition of city street data in South Africa. Many street names are being corrected and we are also updating route numbers on main roads. Our team continued their research in Western Africa to add major routes and towns which has increased the map coverage considerably in these regions.
We processed 533 data submissions for this version resulting in the addition of about 43 000km of road data and about 2 000 POI’s. Some of the highlights are:
· Burkina Faso major routes and attractions added
