In our constantly changing world, maintaining up-to-date maps is a challenge. Users rely on maps to reflect current, real-world conditions. For some applications, like first responders and emergency services, the need for safe routes and precise location information leaves little room for error. In shipping and delivery time is money -- accurate maps allow distributors to identify the optimal route for every package. Consumer applications too increasingly use detailed maps such as those that enable precise pick-ups and drop-offs in ridesharing.
Clarity, accuracy, and currency are critical components of safe and efficient maps.
