i just stumbled upon this article here http://www.gpsbusinessnews.com/TomTom-s-crowdsourcing-5-millionth-map-correction_a1234.html

it says (beside other things) tomtom collects track data of their users and calculates avg. speeds per street/way.

- did anyone think about that using our tracks and map data?
- is it feasible?
- will/can derived data be used?

did someone look at our track data in that context? i know people to erase date/time information before uploading.... what percentage of tracks do have the necessary information?

for what roads would this be useful? i imagine not for shortest ways. an avg. speed per daytime would be useful. and also by weekday... lots of data/attributes. maybe version 2 :-)
