Making a 21st Century Digital Map

HERE Maps TRUE Car

Learn how HERE creates accurate maps for your vehicle's navigation system.

A single segment of road contains up to 260 unique data points including speed limits, junctions, exits, turn restrictions, street names, and much more. To ensure the highest level of accuracy, maps sold on Navigation.com are created by HERE, a global leader in navigation, mapping, and location experiences.

HERE combines satellite and aerial imagery with data collected on the ground to produce highly accurate maps. At the core of the terrestrial data capturing process are hundreds of TRUE cars, each of which is equipped with high-accuracy GPS, LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging for 3D representations), a 24-megapixel camera, and an inertial measurement unit. Additional multi-camera vehicles are also deployed. Collectively, these vehicles contribute millions of changes (additions/modifications/deletions) to the global road network each day! This massive data collection effort enables HERE to create maps and map updates that improve your navigation system's routing accuracy, proximity searches, and distance calculation.
