In recent years, more and more research is dealing with autonomous and self-driving vehicles; and the driven kilometers are also growing rapidly. The technological development stimulates the demand for better maps, where, not only the accuracy and resolution have to be increased, but also a new role for maps emerges. The newly produced maps will not only help to find an optimal route to a destination, but must support the positioning procedure as well. In some situations (e.g., in parking houses) the map-based positioning can efficiently improve the accuracy, while a higher safety level is enabled due to redundant data acquisition.
This Special Issue seeks contributions exploring the recent developments and future potential in high definition mapping, 3D modeling of urban and rural environment, big map data storage and update, real time map databases and supporting traffic safety.
