In this edition we’ll review the challenges presented by the many methods of location referencing and how TIC software presents a solution that is used for many traffic related projects around the world.

While we’re on the topic of location referencing, we’ll profile Jürgen Terpe, GEWI’s resident expert in map and network data that is central to precise location referencing and harmonization.
