Caught Mapping is a 9 minute black and white documentary (?) on the mapping process in 1940 America. Strangely, it all seems vaguely familiar: substitute the old car and the “special intrusments” with an SUV equipped with a laptop and a GPS receiver and voila! You have the road warriors of today out collecting and updating road data (see Collecting Street Map Data, NavTeq, TeleAtlas Road Data Collection, Road Data Collection Again, and Road Mapping).

The film is available as a download in various formats or streamed over the Internet.
