Challenge

Intetics’s client, a leading company in the production of mapping software, wanted to update the base of points of interest collected at a certain distance from specific highways for better geolocation. The client needed to collect and analyze POIs in a clearly defined radius to exclude any possible duplicate creation within their existing database.

Since the process demanded constant maintenance to keep the database in an up-to-date condition, it required the lowest cost model combined with the delivery of the highest accuracy of data.
