In addition to a rash
of hiring positions the company has recently posted
for work on further improving its Maps app, Apple has posted a new job
for a "Maps Ground Truth
Data Specialist" for Australia. The country has had to deal with sometimes-dangerous levels of incorrect information from both Apple Maps
and Google Maps
, resulting in police warnings to motorists and others not to rely exclusively on the mapping data provided by the apps. The new position would send people out to verify and correct satellite imagery.
