It is of interest. Centimeter precision can help aerial view
calibration or checking existing sources like Bing, cadastre... Also,
in countries where WAAS/EGNOS is not available, you will improve the
GNSS systems are changing a lot presently. Within 2020, we should have
120 GNSS satellites. Already existing chips working with single L1
frequency may obtain sub-decimetre accuracy with post-processing.
u-blox NEO-6 is one of them.
NV08C-CSM from Navit is also very promising with multi-constellation.
Retail prices are lower than 50$. You can find prototype for less than
500$ but one can imagine mass product for much lower prices:
I encourage you look at Michele Bavaro's blog:
Comparison of several chips with typical accuracy of 4 cm:
25 satellites (GPS, Glonass, Galileo) at the same time:
Indeed, I'm dreaming of a GNSS raw data logger with also a 3D
accelerometer+gyroscop (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11028), USB
for control and battery charging, and bluetooth for remote control by
No one want founding for such a development? ;-)
