Dataset for testing and training map-matching methods

We present a dataset for testing, bench-marking, and offline learning of map-matching algorithms. For the first time, a large enough dataset is available to prove or disprove map-matching hypotheses on a world-wide scale. There are several hundred map-matching algorithms published in literature, each tested only on a limited scale due to difficulties in collecting truly large scale data. Our contribution aims to provide a convenient gold standard to compare various map-matching algorithms between each other. Moreover, as many state-of-the-art map-matching algorithms are based on techniques that require offline learning, our dataset can be readily used as the training set. Because of the global coverage of our dataset, learning does not have to be be biased to the part of the world where the algorithm was tested.
