Apple Annouced Its Apple Maps Vehicles Begin Survey In Canada

Apple today announced that its Apple Maps vehicle is being surveyed in Canada. These vehicles will travel through all 10 provinces from May to November, including British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick. Province, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island. These vehicles have been seen in the Toronto area.

The areas that will not be surveyed including Yukon, Northwestern Territories, and the Northern part of the Nunavut region, which is sparsely populated. The data collected by these survey vehicles, including road details, signs and landmarks, will be used to improve Apple Maps.
Beginning in May, Apple Maps will be driving across Canada throughout the summer. We’ll be capturing road details, signage and landmarks — all to make the most accurate and useful Maps experience possible. The information collected will be worked on by our teams in Cupertino, California. We plan to publish this data in a future product update.

We always have your privacy in mind, so we’re working closely with local regulators to ensure we follow all laws and regulations. All of our vehicles are marked Apple Maps, so you’ll always know it’s us.

Privacy is a fundamental Apple principle, so we’re proud to build it into everything we do.
Since 2015, Apple Maps vehicles have also been surveyed in parts of the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, France, Spain, Sweden, Slovenia, Portugal, Croatia, Japan, Andorra, and Puerto Rico. The data it collected could pave the way for Apple to launch its own Street View feature, but there is no concrete evidence that such possibilitiy is authentic.
