Inclusive Value of Digital Maps and Its Geospatial Service on Civic, Economic, and Society

Urbanization is rapidly increasing in China and the number of mobile travelers using the digital map is rising even faster. Use of geographic information in China is forbidden to the other overseas digital map providers such as Google Maps, so there are limited studies evaluating the performance of digital map services in China. In this study, different algorithms were deployed to evaluate and cross-validate the inclusive value of one of the most popular digital maps in China which has over 400 million MAUs from civic, economic, and social perspectives. The main objectives are evaluating the contribution of digital maps for transportation systems within four scales, safety travel, convenient travel, efficient travel, and green travel, respectively. The results showed that the digital map and its geospatial service helped users save more than 1.93 billion hours and 10.9 billion km for a year by providing rational route planning and avoiding congestion in real-time.
