Sarah Kenske reports that St. Louis is one of eight cities where the new app LaneSpotter will test its service.

"Like Waze, LaneSpotter relies on those who use the roads to provide data," explains Fenske. "Until a good number are contributing, it's simply not as useful as it should be." To that end, the app is sponsoring "The Great Rate" this week—a map building activity that relies on data collected by the crowd.

Fenske's coverage focuses specifically on St. Louis, including an explanation for one LaneSpotter selected among eight cities for the pilot. New York, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Atlanta, Minneapolis, and Portland were also chosen by LaneSpotter for pilot runs of the app.
