Apple Hiring 'Maps Ground Truth Data Specialist' in Australia
Apple has posted a new job listing for a 'Maps Ground Truth Data Specialist' in Australia. The job listing, which was posted two days ago, comes several months after Apple came under fire for incorrect mapping data in central Australia.
The position will check "changes to map data, provide feedback on unique local map requirements, collect ground truth information, and evaluate competing products."
'Ground Truth' refers to information collected on location versus data collected remotely, such as satellite imagery. Wikipedia notes that the "collection of ground-truth data enables calibration of remote-sensing data, and aids in the interpretation and analysis of what is being sensed."
