In recent years, the advent of car navigation systems has laid the ground for an entirely new industry sector, consisting of map producers, car/ personal/ smart phone navigation manufacturers, and service providers. It has probably gone unnoticed that navigation systems mark a major change in the way we use maps. Partially, they are still just a replacement for traditional maps, providing a means to store and visualize a representation of the environment. In contrast to the traditional use of maps, however, navigation systems perform computations using the map's data structures, such as shortest route, map matching, and route guidance. That is, from an abstract point of view, part of the map is made for machine use only – the user has no direct access to it but rather is only presented the outcome of the computations.
