GPS task: road information for vehicles

Postby jingruih » Mon Aug 09, 2010 11:42 pm

In this task, we only have the latitude and longitude of vehicles, and we need to estimate which road the vehicles are on based on this information, which is not easily obtained and seems to be a bottleneck of this task. Can the organizers provide this information so that the participants could focus more on the machine learning / data mining side of this problem? Thanks a lot!

Sorry, we can't provide this information, it's a part of the task to retrieve it (if you think it's necessary). GPS task was thought of as the most difficult one and it's atypical "by design", to give a flavor of difficulties faced when analyzing geographical data. When compared to other tasks, it's on one hand more difficult to come up with a solution, but on the other hand the claim to fame will be bigger. :) So good luck and don't give up!
