Importance of Buffer Size

The buffer size helps determine when a vehicle has visited a landmark. If the buffer size is set to .25 then every GPS location within ¼ of a mile of the POI will be considered to have visited that landmark. In general a smaller buffer is preferred because there will be less chance to catch locations that did not truly visit the landmark. For example, if a landmark represents a store located inside a shopping center and the buffer size is too big then a vehicle that was at stopped at the intersection would be considered visiting the landmark.
