U.S. Postal Service Adds Digital Mapping Capabilities to Operations

January 14, 2010

CHICAGO - The United States Postal Service (USPS) has selected NAVTEQ map data for use within the geospatial component of its eFMS (Electronic Facilities Management System) application.

The eFMS uses spatial analysis tools to support a number of critical USPS initiatives, including efficiently using the space within USPS' more than 35,000 facilities nationwide and building spatial tools to help manage leases on over 25,000 facilities. NAVTEQ map data is used in the eFMS to assess the impact of delivery zone adjustments and reduce costs as facilities are reconfigured, according to the company.

Johnston McLamb, an IT consulting firm specializing in visualization and geospatial business intelligence, originally developed the eFMS application and has worked closely with USPS for several years to support and enhance the system, including developing spatial analysis tools that use NAVTEQ map data.

NAVTEQ map data includes geospatial information such as roads, cities, political boundaries, physical features, places, railroads, census boundaries, parks, schools, fire departments, police departments, and hospitals, and many other geospatial vector data layers for the USPS geospatial program.
