Abstract
We study five existing map construction algorithms, designed and tested with urban vehicle data in mind, and apply them to hiking trajectories with different terrain characteristics. Our main goal is to better understand the existing algorithms and to what extent they apply in a wider context. Indeed, our data differs from the one previously used to evaluate map construction algorithm in several aspects: higher GPS error, narrow and winding paths, and trajectories with its own characteristics in...
