I used to do the PR for MapInfo (in the UK and Europe). They certainly
sell the data and they used to have something called MapBasic to program
in. Probably a Rolls Royce solution though, as it certainly will cost.

Alternatively they have a big network of developers, any one of which
probably already has this sorted and may sell cheaper solutions.
