TomTom serves multiple industries with its maps, data analytics, navigation, traffic insights and more. The partnership with Maxar gives TomTom the ability to offer its customers a photorealistic map representative of the world around them. Additionally, customers of TomTom’s automotive and business software platforms can offer their end users satellite imagery and give them more context about potential challenges in the field.
