Dear cycling and map lovers,
From Friday 1st July, the Tour de France 2022 returns to punctuate your summer days. During 3 weeks, the riders will ride through some of the most beautiful regions of France. Many of you will be following them along the roads.
To celebrate this 109th edition, we are launching a major map alert campaign in the departments crossed by the race. From Tuesday 5th July, we will publish the stages that will take place in France. The Top Start of this campaign and the beginning of the counting of the number of resolved map alerts is the day of the official start in Copenhagen on Friday 1st July. Many official gifts of the Tour de France 2022 are to be won.
We are organising this challenge because, at HERE Technologies, we are updating our mapping solutions to make it easier and safer for you to travel. We are also updating the Points of Interest (hotels, restaurants, gas stations…) that will be useful during this event. And you should know that HERE Technologies offers solutions dedicated to motor homes if you travel with this type of vehicle (size restrictions, reserved parking spaces, etc.).
For this we have identified new areas for which we ask you to resolve map alerts in a dedicated campaign. Resolved map alerts will be counted from July 1st 2022 to be eligible for rewards.
Our objectives are:
- – To check street segments where speed limit situations are displayed that appear incorrect.
- – To contribute to the EU’s ISA regulations and to improve road safety.
