The present disclosure provides systems and methods for providing geographic information including data indicative of a flow lane that a vehicle can follow to facilitate improved vehicle navigation and/or control. A flow lane can provide an indication of a path of travel for a vehicle relative to a map or other source of geographic information, as well as a reference for localizing a vehicle’s location relative to the flow lane. In some examples, a flow lane can represent an ideal path of travel for a vehicle or other moveable object. Additionally, a flow lane can indicate a region in which a vehicle may travel relative to the ideal path of travel.
