Project objective was to design a new data collection process so a leading map maker can provide the most up-to-date maps to their users and stay ahead of competition.

The digital map provider can remain a leader in the industry only if their maps remain accurate and up-to-date. To collect accurate information, the map provider typically collects geo data from geotagged videos that are collected by field teams using specialized vehicles with video cameras. The field teams regularly visit assigned areas to record changes and update the client’s maps accordingly. Changes, however, can occur more often than the regularly scheduled field trips. Yet, these changes need to be reflected in client’s maps as soon as possible, or they will begin losing users. To ensure changes are recorded as quickly as possible, the client asked Intetics to come up with an alternative solution to gathering and verifying geodata.
