NAVTEQ Traffic Patterns Released

So fresh off my post yesterday on the same subject, NAVTEQ is preparing for the future of better traffic services with this release of historical traffic data. NAVTEQ has made available its NAVTEQ Traffic Patterns, a database of typical traffic speeds on over 170,000 miles of primary and secondary roads across major U.S. cities, including interconnecting highways.

This new product delivers speeds for primary and secondary roads (function classes one through three) in major cities across the United States. Historical observations from GPS probe data are aggregated, verified, and then matched to TMC (Traffic Message Channel) codes on the NAVTEQ map.

Again, this data will eventually find its way onto your GPS and help you make better decisions about travel times through traffic. Don't forget that Traffic.com has ths data also, and there is a pending acquisition of Traffic.com by NAVTEQ. Should be interesting once they get together to see what the future looks like for the combined firm.
