OpenStreetMap community receives AI-powered mapping tool

“I’m proud to announce that Facebook is officially opening up our Map With AI service to the OSM mapping community. Mappers will now have access to our AI-powered mapping tools...driving a higher level of detail, quality and accuracy on the map. Initially, anyone will be able to validate our AI-generated roads and add them to OSM maps of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda, with more countries rolling out over time,” Drishtie Patel, The Facebook Maps Team.

The conversation about the “border problem” in American society — and particularly in U.S. politics — shows little sign of abating. While migrant apprehensions across the entire border between the United States and Mexico are near a two-decade low, arrests in the Rio Grande Valley sector adjacent to Reynosa, Mexico have spiked since 2013. This Maxar Spotlight features an advanced analytics approach to identifying and mapping regional activities to help shed insight on situations such as this.

The road to autonomy is paved with geospatial data

Explore the crucial role of geospatial data in the evolution of mapping for vehicle navigation--from paper maps to the future tech requirements for full autonomy.

Mapping invasive plants for Galapagos restoration

The Charles Darwin Foundation (CDF), in collaboration with the Galapagos National Park Directorate(GNPD), is mapping the invasive plant species in the humid zone of the Galapagos Islands.
