“Apple has expanded its postings for ‘Maps Ground Truth’ jobs to the rest of the world, after initially hiring for similar positions only in Australia,” Jordan Golson reports for MacRumors. “‘Ground Truth’ refers to information collected on location versus data collected remotely, such as satellite imagery.”
“The jobs, for ‘Maps Ground Truth Manager’ positions, have been posted for the U.S., The Americas, Western Europe, Japan, Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East & Africa,” Golson reports. “Apple has been working to improve its maps after criticism led CEO Tim Cook to publicly apologize for issues customers had. Google’s Maps app for iOS was downloaded more than 10 million times in two days after it became available several months after Apple’s maps were released.”
