    Today's post is about High Def Mapping. I received a PR put out by a market research firm pitching their analysis. I usually ignore these overt sales pitches but what caught my attention was that they were segmenting the market for highly accurate road networks. Now, we all can appreciate that autonomous vehicles are in their nascent stage of development. But, I can readily see that more precise definitions of road segments, curb heights, driveway entries, etc. will need to be remapped. If the promise of autonomous vehicles is to be met, then mapping of roads through various data capture methodologies (e.g. lidar) will be expected.
