Jeff Raimo (NAVTEQ), Jessica Borak (NAVTEQ)

Although LIDAR has been used for years in various ways to collect things like terrain imagery only recently has it been paired with other advanced technologies like ultra-precise GPS positioning equipment and high resolution and panoramic cameras to collect details of the road network with extreme accuracy and advanced intelligence. The result are new features coming to maps that were either impossible to collect and/or cost prohibitive. Additionally, these technologies are revolutionizing they way map maintenance is being conducted.
