Eugene Lisovskiy, CEO, MAPS.ME | SotM Asia 2017 |The Future of OSM in Asia and Beyond


Published on

State of the Map Asia (SotM-Asia) is the annual regional conference of OpenStreetMap (OSM) organized by OSM communities in Asia. First SotM-Asia was organized in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2015, and the second was organized in Manila, Philippines in 2016. This year’s conference, third in the series, was organized in Kathmandu, Nepal on September 23 – 24, 2017 at Park Village Resort, Budhanilkantha, Kathmandu, Nepal.

We brought nearly 200 Open Mapping enthusiasts from Asia and beyond to this year’s SotM-Asia. The event provided an opportunity to share knowledge and experience among mappers; expand their network; and generate ideas to expand map coverage and effective use of OSM data in Asian continent. We chose ‘from creation to use of OSM data’ as the theme of this year’s conference, emphasizing on the effective use of OSM data. We also brought together a government panel from four different countries in this year’s SotM-Asia. We believe this event will deepen the bond and enhance collaboration among OSM communities across Asia.

Eugene Lisovskiy, CEO, MAPS.ME | SotM Asia 2017 |The Future of OSM in Asia and Beyond

  1. 1. Eugene Lisovskiy CEO of MAPS.ME Artificial Intelligence, Neural Networks, Augmented Reality and Robotics: New Challenges for OSM.
  2. 2. ❖ Trends in imagery Industry ❖ Neural networks educated by OSM community. ❖ Dashcams and Navigation with Augmented Reality (AR). ❖ Commercial data automatic imports. ❖ Regular mobile maps users data (GPS traces & POIs). ❖ Video/radar/lidar data from semi/self driving cars/robots. ❖ Summary: The Future of OSM Mapping Agenda
  3. 3. Trends In Imagery Industry
  4. 4. SpaceX – Dropped World Prices for Satellite launch
  5. 5. Satellite Imagery Pros: ❖ Cheaper low-orbit satellite launch (thank to SpaceX). ❖ Higher resolution imagery (30cm/pixel already). ❖ No problems with governments. Cons: ❖ 2 years to launch new satellite, still expensive (min $62M). ❖ 1 satellite captures the whole earth in 2 years. ❖ Not enough resolution to read road and street signs. ❖ Clouds, trees.
  6. 6. 30cm/pixel Imagery by Digitalglobe (WorldView-4)
  7. 7. Drones Aerial Imagery Pros: ❖ Higher resolution imagery (up to 1 cm/pixel). ❖ Cheap & easy-to-use. ❖ Under the clouds + daily snapshots. Cons: ❖ Low area coverage. Many drones required. ❖ Security regulations for capturing cities. ❖ Unstable quality (different drones, angels, resolution).
  8. 8. Hi-res Aerial Imagery by Bing in Spain
  9. 9. Neural Networks Educated by OSM Community
  10. 10. AI and Neural Networks Pros: ❖ Well educated AI recognise images better than human. ❖ No supercomputer required. Community laptops is enough. ❖ Can work with standard imagery, lidar, radar data. Cons: ❖ No cons, obviously. ❖ Hi-res source data required for better results. ❖ Still the humans need to verify and educate AI.
  11. 11. Roads recognized by Facebook IA
  12. 12. IA must be educated by humans
  13. 13. Mind-blowing 3D Views by Google...
  14. 14. AI... what?
  15. 15. Dashcams And Navigation With Augmented Reality (AR)
  16. 16. AR navigation by Sygic

  25. 25. Outdoor robots by Boston Dynamics
  26. 26. Goods Delivery Robots
  27. 27. OSM Marathon 2025
  28. 28. Regular mobile maps users data (GPS traces & POIs)
  29. 29. ❖ 170 thousand users ❖ 1 million new POIs ❖ 600 thousand updated POIs ❖ 200 thousand notes ❖ 235 countries mapped 1,5 years POI mapping in MAPS.ME
  30. 30. How to Map Faster?
  31. 31. 1. Acquire new mappers: ➢ Mapathons, SOTM ➢ Working with schools and students 2. Engage existent mappers: ➢ Direct (email/push) marketing ➢ Gamification, loyalty programs & activities 3. Start Using AI: ➢ Hi-res satellite and aerial imagery ➢ Develop algorithms, Educate Neural Networks 4. Partner with Self/Semi driving cars providers How To Engage More People Into Mapping?
  32. 32. Google Maps: 1B Billion users = 1M POI Mappers
  33. 33. Google Maps: Engagement, Loyalty, Direct Marketing
  34. 34. Facebook: Suggest Edits
  35. 35. More MAPS.ME Users = More Active OSM Mappers Hardcore OSM Mappers Casual POI Mappers New Mobile Maps Users Mobile mappers are 18 times more active than regular mappers. ❖ 4000k registered mappers ❖ 30k monthly active mappers ❖ 0,8% of active mappers MASP.ME ❖ 176k registered mappers ❖ 25k monthly active mappers ❖ 14% of active mappers
  36. 36. The Future of OSM Mapping (2020+) POIs details (contacts, services) along streets and inside buildings. Roads details (lines, limits, surface), building details (street name, building numbers). Buildings, roads, rivers, forest, terrain, 1. Satellite + AI + Humans education Source: hi-res satellite/aerial/drone imagery open network. Processing: automatic IA recognition + verification and neural networks education by humans. 2. Cars + AI + Humans education Source: imagery, lidar, radar data from self/semi driving cars. Processing: automatic IA recognition + verification and neural networks education by humans. 3. Humans + AI validation Source: data partners, mobile edits + user images Processing: collaborative human validation.
