In the frame of our "I-Navigate" project, we create a software system that allows to extend digital navigation maps automatically and, thus, to improve their quality continuously. In order to achieve this, a track is gathered through tracing the paths of users (on foot, by car or by bicycle, for instance) via GPS. This track is converted into a route, which is merged with the current map graph and supplied to the user as an updated, navigable map. Areas of application comprise the continuous extension of car navigation systems (last mile integration), the addition of off-road features to navigation maps (e.g. for outdoor and leisure activities, like mountain biking or offtrack skiing), but also the surveillance of users navigating such a track in order to enable better targeted rescues in emergency cases (e.g. for mountaineers).
