Apple today announced in a statement that its Apple Maps vehicles will be collecting Maps data throughout the summer in Canada starting today until November.

The vehicles will collect on the ground data for Apple Maps in 10 of Canada’s regions including Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, and Saskatchewan. They will collect road details, signage, and land remarks to “make the most accurate and useful Maps experience possible.”

Here’s Apple’s full statement:

Beginning in May, Apple Maps will be driving across Canada throughout the summer. We’ll be capturing road details, signage and landmarks — all to make the most accurate and useful Maps experience possible. The information collected will be worked on by our teams in Cupertino, California. We plan to publish this data in a future product update.

We always have your privacy in mind, so we’re working closely with local regulators to ensure we follow all laws and regulations. All of our vehicles are marked Apple Maps, so you’ll always know it’s us.

Privacy is a fundamental Apple principle, so we’re proud to build it into everything we do.
