THE MAPPING LAYER
Augmenting the physical world means connecting 3D assets to geographic locations. However, GPS is not enough to achieve the accuracy required for true interactivity and immersiveness. This is a particularly acute problem when indoors.
To solve this, we built the map2earn system that allows users to map the physical world with their own smartphones. Better still, they’ll be rewarded for their efforts.
For starters, they’ll own the output from mapping efforts in the form of an NFT, called an OVRMap. OVRMaps can also be bought by other users on the OVER Marketplace. Throughout the year users will be tasked to map iconic locations around the world which will be paid for using OVR tokens. Keep an eye out for opportunities as the year progresses.
Mapped locations will have a localization accuracy of 20 centimetres indoors and outdoors – as opposed to a minimum of 5 metres for GPS outdoors. GPS is effectively useless indoors.
No other platform on the blockchain, nor in the traditional world, can currently achieve this.
