Announcement of discontinuation – PTV maps 2014 for PTV xServer and PTV Mapserver

We would like to let you know that PTV GROUP will be discontinuing all versions of the PTV Maps 2014 as listed below on 01/01/2016. From then onwards, we will no longer provide updates and support for those versions which have been released for PTV xServer and PTV Mapserver. Please notice that this discontinuation includes detailed, extracted and transit maps and the corresponding data content such as traffic patterns, truck attributes, POIs, toll scenarios, ID mappings, etc. if available. New map versions are already provided by PTV (see presentation at our web-site).

Why are the PTV Maps being phased out?

The PTV Maps are constantly being enhanced. Many new and improved functions or content have been integrated at the request of our customers. In addition, you will have noticed that a maintenance contract on the current versions pays off, as it offers a better data coverage. It also guarantees that you remain up-to-date – a basic prerequisite for day-to-day operations. PTV Group is therefore meeting the growing requirements of its clients. The current maps therefore create the perfect conditions to visualize your business applications.
