Satellite and aerial imagery as well as LIDAR today have captured substantial areas as raw material for the production of maps. Processing of stereographic images from such capturing devices even allows to produce a three-dimensional bird’s view on communities and territory. But, when it comes to capturing of fine-grained mapping information, like traffic signs, facades of buildings/landmarks, POIs, infrastructure information like width, height and weight limits for bridges/tunnels, …, systematic street level capturing is inevitable. Up to now, this street level capturing requires a lot of manual work, as well for capturing and post processing. Seasonal restrictions, which delimit capturing activities to summer times with high elevations of the sun over horizon, are also not infre
