Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR COLLECTING AND PROVIDING MAP IMAGES
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE RASSEMBLEMENT ET DE FOURNITURE D'IMAGES DE CARTES
Abstract:
(EN) Aspects of the present disclosure relate to collecting images of maps 146 at plurality of client devices 170, 171, orienting the images with respect to the Earth, and providing the oriented maps to users. The map images 315, 415, may be collected by users who orient the maps by arranging the position of the image over a picture of the Earth 510. In another example, users may orient the maps by using "pushpins" 620, 630 to indicate the location of two or more points in the map image 415 to two or more locations on the image of the Earth 610. The images may be processed in order to generate high quality images which may then be downloaded and used by other users.
(FR) Selon certains aspects, la présente invention porte sur le rassemblement d'images de cartes 146 au niveau d'une pluralité de dispositifs client 170, 171, l'orientation des images par rapport à la Terre, et la fourniture des cartes orientées à des utilisateurs. Les images de cartes 315, 415 peuvent être rassemblées par des utilisateurs qui orientent les cartes par agencement de la position de l'image sur une image de la Terre 510. Selon un autre exemple, des utilisateurs peuvent orienter les cartes par utilisation de « punaises » 620, 630 pour indiquer l'emplacement d'au moins deux points dans l'image de carte 415 à au moins deux emplacements sur l'image de la Terre 610. Les images peuvent être traitées de manière à générer des images de haute qualité qui peuvent ensuite être téléchargées et utilisées par d'autres utilisateurs.
