Hi guys,

Here's an interesting article talking about how TomTom's MapShare
program (both the active and passive types) are helping Tele Atlas
(which was bought by TomTom) improve their data. The article itself is
very educational, but the accompanying images are quite informative in
themselves.

This goes to show that even though a GPS may have errors, given enough
data, the errors are averaged out and we can get real positional
accuracy. So keep on uploading those (cleaned-up please) GPX traces!
:-)
