  • Patent number: 9778061
    Abstract: A map region is analyzed by a mobile device or by a server. The map region including one or more road segments is identified. Multiple points are selected from the map region. From each of the selected points, a distance is measured from the selected point to a nearest road segment of the one or more road segments. A road density value is determined from the distances. The road density value may be based on an average of the distances. In one example, the road density value is an inverse of the average of the distances. The road density value may be a parameter for matching subsequent probe points to a road segment in the map region.

  • Patent number: 9584237
    Abstract: A method is provided herein for selecting a combination of a subset of weather stations from among a plurality of weather stations for estimating the weather at a specific location. The method may include: receiving an indication of a plurality of weather stations within a predefined area, where the predefined area includes a first location; determining, for each of the plurality of weather stations, a distance of the weather station from the first location; calculating, for a plurality of different combinations of subsets of the plurality of weather stations, an average distance of the weather stations of each of the plurality of different combinations from the first location; calculating, for each of the different combinations of subsets, an average location relative to the first location; and selecting a combination of a subset of the plurality of weather stations based on the average distance and the average location.

  • Patent number: 9506763
    Abstract: An approach is provided for determining a plurality of notifications associated with one or more curved sections of at least one travel segment. The approach involves causing, at least in part, an aggregation of the plurality of notifications into at least one aggregated notification based, at least in part, on a road distance threshold between the one or more curved sections. The approach also involves causing, at least in part, a presentation of the at least one aggregated notification in place of separately presenting the plurality of notifications.

  • Publication number: 20160144853
    Abstract: An approach is provided for prioritizing notification to one or more vehicles based on the ranking of one or more road links. The approach involves determining one or more road links that are associated with at least one curvature value greater than at least one curvature threshold value. The approach also involves determining humanized speed information and speed limit information for the one or more road links. The approach further involves processing and/or facilitating a processing of the at least one curvature value, the humanized speed information, and the speed limit information to determine danger level information for the one or more road links. The approach also involves causing, at least in part, a ranking of the one or more road links based, at least in part, on the danger level information.

  • Publication number: 20160092615
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and computer program product are provided for weather station data usage based on weather data confidence. In the context of a method, the method includes receiving historical weather data associated with a candidate weather station and plurality of weather stations, determining distances between a candidate weather station and respective ones of the plurality of weather stations, and generating a station to station location based model of weather attribute errors associated with the distances between the candidate weather station and the respective weather stations of the plurality of weather stations.
