Howdy,

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but there's a great book that
will give you some insight into the problem of mapping an area not known
a priori ("known before").  It's called Artificial Intelligence and Mobile
Robots -- Case Studies of Successful Robot Systems; Edited by David
Kortenkamp, R. Peter Bonasso and Robin Murphy; Published by MIT Press.

Sebastian Thrun has done some interesting work in mapping and navigation.
"Map Learning and High-Speed Navigation in RHINO" is a good example of the
papers he's published.

Sebastian's Homepage is:

Enjoy!

James
