Will Uber's app will finally show where your car REALLY is? Firm reveals new hi-res maps
from Daily Mail
Most Uber riders know the pain of watching the tiny car in the app drive around in circles before reaching the blue dot. Now, the ride-sharing giant is teaming up with DigitalGlobe, a vendor of space imagery and geospatial content, "to help identify and improve pickup and drop-off locations." Using constellation sensors, the duo will access imagery and location intelligence to create high resolution maps of the area — giving drivers the ability to see exactly where you are.
