Title: CONTEXTUAL MAP VIEW
Abstract:
Systems and methods of providing map data to a user are provided. For instance, a plurality of points of interest associated with a geographic area to be displayed in a viewport associated with a digital mapping application can be identified. An adjusted position can be determined for an orientation point of interest. The adjusted position is a position that does not align with a position of the orientation point of interest in the physical world. A map topology associated with map data defining a visual representation of the geographic area can be adjusted based at least in part on the adjusted position. The orientation POI can be provided for display at the adjusted position associated with the map data within the mapping application.
