Recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and computer vision have enabled detailed mapping of urban spaces at scale using street-level imagery data. In this talk, we present an end-to-end process of mapping sidewalks and street furniture from the collection of high-resolution panoramic sidewalk view images to producing detailed spatial point and line data layers representing the walking infrastructure.
