Based on Dynamap/Transportation Data From Tele Atlas
The data a map program uses is the most important part of the application. Precision Mapping Streets and Traveler v8.1 uses Premium Data from Tele Atlas, with coverage for the entire United States and Canada. (Early versions of Precision Mapping used Tiger Data (from the US Census) which lacked the quality and coverage of the premium data supplied from Tele Atlas.. Streets and Traveler now also includes one-way street indicators and exit ramp identification.

Starting with Version 8.x, in addition to the high quality map data, the new version comes with an integrated Points of Interest (POI) data set, with restaurants, service stations, hotels, medical facilities, banks, and millions of other useful locations. You can selectively display these POIs on the map, search for them, use them as destination points in routing calculations, and more...

RoadBuilder - Updating that Keeps Databases Current
Traveler is one of the few trip planning program that features Roadbuilder which lets you easily add new streets or extend existing roads. Once new roads are added, you can define them according to the type of traffic they handle, such as trails, routes, interstates, etc. You can also name the newly added roadways as desired.

This important update feature of Traveler keeps your personal databases current and useful for years to come. With RoadBuilder, adding new streets or modifying existing ones is a simple menu-driven process that enables locating, placing and defining new roadway information exactly how you want it.

RiteRoute will also layout your journey to your specifications, with options such as shortest distance, least turns or other parameters that you establish. And you can always print out a copy of your travel route for quick reference as you drive to your destination.

Searching Made Easy - To find a location anywhere in the United States all you do is enter any of the following: street address, street name, city or town name, state, zip code, latitude and longitude coordinates, telephone area code or telephone prefix.

You don’t even have to enter all the information or the exact name, as Traveler’s "wildcard" feature allows you to search for all locations in a particular area that begin with a certain word or letter.
