Abstract

See full text

User feedback such as “crowd sourcing” is utilized for supplementing and correcting augmented location information like augmented maps and/or street view images. User feedback on missing or incorrect information is elicited through “treasure hunt” style augmented reality games, monetary or similar rewards, and comparable incentives. Various mechanisms such as authentication of data submitting users, input from known users, image or location based confirmation from a data submitting user, and similar ones may be employed to verify the new data before or after it is published.
