Accurate digital maps play a crucial role in various location-based services and applications. However, store information is usually missing or outdated in current maps. In this paper, we propose CrowdGIS, an automatic store self-updating system for digital maps that leverages street views and sensing data crowdsourced from mobile users. We first develop a new weighted artificial neural network to learn the underlying relationship between estimated positions and real positions to localize user… CONTINUE READING
