road gps mapping
Researchers used crowd-sourcing to create an algorithm that maps "beautiful, quiet, and happy" routes in London and Boston.
Researchers at Yahoo have developed a GPS algorithm that allows users to choose a route 
between two points based on beauty rather than the time or distance it takes.
The Shortest Path to Happiness study carried out by Yahoo Labs in collaboration with 
the University of Torino in Italy sought to offer "emotionally pleasant" routes using data 
from a crowd-sourcing platform.
