Digital mapping is a process by which data is collected and compiled to form a virtual image. The data compiled is used to produce maps that accurately represent a particular geographical area or feature, including major roads, rivers, and important landmarks such as airports, tourist attractions, and hospitals.

Digital mapping technology can also be used to calculate the distance between different places. In recent times, digital maps have been increasingly used for various location-enabled applications such as Google Earth, Google Maps, and Foursquare. However, the technology is mainly used in GPS satellite networks, which are an important component of automotive navigation systems.

With the advancement in GPS technology, several useful features such as live traffic updates and places of interest have been added, making the systems more user-friendly. In many cases, users have the option of choosing between virtual maps, satellite, or hybrid views as per their requirements. The information on digital mapping devices is continuously updated to include new landmarks and places of interest.
