Title: Locally Generated Unique Identifiers for Geospatial Data
Examiner: Flavius Gruian
Supervisor: Jonas Skeppstedt (LTH), Patrick Cording (Apple Inc.)
This thesis tackles challenges in geospatial data identification within digital mapping applications, focusing on roads in OpenStreetMap. Traditional methods for generating unique IDs face limitations, prompting the exploration of functional ID generation using hashing algorithms. The Geohash portion of the hash, crucial for representing the geospatial position, undergoes extensive optimizations, including an elevation representation with zero bit cost. The resulting hashing function demonstrates zero collisions globally in the OpenStreetMap dataset using 71 bits. Various other optimization attempts are detailed, including global length analysis and intersection resolution, showing promising results. The study contributes insights into geospatial hashing for efficient and collision-free road identification, offering practical implications for large-scale mapping applications.
