future of mapping ?

interesting read ;

Proof of Location technologies like FOAM present an impressive challenge to the GPS standard. Already live on Ethereum, FOAM’s Proof of Location protocol is using a peer-to-peer network and token staking model to create a live map of the world that can be leveraged to track anything, from items along a supply chain, to autonomous vehicles.

Traffic data, like congestion info and sensors for managing public transportation such as trains and buses. Or vehicle-specific data from sensors in cars and trucks, measuring everything from CO2 emissions to speed. Some Jaguar Landrover vehicles for example collect data about problems in the highway surface (e.g. potholes), which is subsequently used to create warnings for other JLR drivers.

Dual-frequency GNSS is readily available for every vendor, but they are being very slow to adopt it. While the reasons why are unclear, it’s likely that we can point to cost as a contributing factor. Xiaomi is leading the charge at the moment, but it remains to be seen if other major vendors are going to jump on the bandwagon.
Dual-frequency GNSS can prove to be absolutely vital in big cities where multipath errors are a common issue. With the Galileo satellite constellation in Europe nearing completion, now is a better time than ever for companies to start looking at dual-frequency GNSS in earnest.
