1. A method for managing content of a landmark database in a Visual Simultaneous Localization and Mapping System (VSLAM) for a mobile device, the method comprising:

  • visually obtaining a measurement of a landmark;

    analyzing a quality of the measurement, where the quality of the measurement provides an indication of whether the measurement is an outlier;

    storing an indication when the measurement has been identified as an outlier; and

    removing a landmark from the map when the measurements of the landmark are repeatedly identified as outliers.
