Digitalizing city planning

As more and more people are shifting to digital environments, it makes sense that city planning will also eventually be completely digitized.

There are many benefits to this. Map making will be much easier and also, the information can be used to develop location-aware software.

One possible application is in the use of autonomous vehicles. Google has been developing driverless cars that are mostly based on visual and geographic information. These cars can be greatly enhanced if provided with supplemental data such as parking spots or traffic light patterns.
