I wonder how?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know how they gather all the coordinates for mapping software? Do they send a team around to measure all the gas stations, restaurants etc?

Very good question Insp. I've wondered the same thing also, particularly with my GPS V which will find a residence address (or any address for that matter) and display coords for it. Garmin Mapsource must buy this info from the Canadian Government. Probably why its so expensive.

Cheers, Olar
