There are still places where there are few local mappers or new roads go undetected. However, lots of people drive on these roads every day and a lot of them are Scout users. This means that we can use the GPS traces to detect areas where there is a high probability that a not mapped road or parking is situated.
You can choose between probable roads, probable parking and mixed traces, when the information collected can be either road or parking.
