Online mapping from the data gatherers’ perspective

I just finished an article on CNET.com by Elinor Mills that poses the all-important question – why are the route directions and locations often inaccurate. She posed this question to a TeleAtlas (a major data provider) executive, Michael Mitsock, and received this response – “It could be that the map is out of synch with reality.” I think I will have to try that the next time someone notes an error on one of my maps.

But seriously, it’s an interesting perspective from the viewpoint of one of the leading players in the market of providing geographic data for online mapping applications.
