Title (EN) VISUALLY-ORIENTED DRIVING DIRECTIONS IN DIGITAL MAPPING SYSTEM
(FR) DIRECTIONS DE CONDUITE A ORIENTATION VISUELLE DANS UN SYSTEME CARTOGRAPHIQUE NUMERIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) Digital mapping techniques are disclosed that provide visually-oriented information to the user, such as driving directions that include visual data points along the way of the driving route, thereby improving the user experience. The user may preview the route associated with the driving directions, where the preview is based on, for example, at least one of satellite images, storefront images, and heuristics and/or business listings.
(FR) L'invention concerne des techniques de cartographie numérique fournissant des informations à orientation visuelle à l'utilisateur, telles que des directions de conduite comportant des points de données visuels le long de l'itinéraire, ce qui améliore l'expérience de l'utilisateur. L'utilisateur peut prévisualiser l'itinéraire associé aux directions de conduite, cette prévisualisation étant par exemple fondée sur des images satellites, des images de vitrine, ou des listes heuristiques et/ou commerciales.
