Abstract

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 up-dated, navigable map. Areas of application comprise the continuous extension of car navigation systems (last mile integration), the addition of off-road features to navi-gation maps (e.g. for outdoor and leisure activities, like mountain biking or off-track 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).
