Hi folks! I’m Ariel Becker, from Argentina. I worked some time now on crypto projects, mostly for the Nebulas project (currently working on a Metamask plugin for that blockchain).
Now, my passion is mapping. I have an (almost) complete map of the railroads in Argentina, and, given my current knowledge on GIS (Geographical Information Systems), I want to develop a fork of Leaflet that implements web3 (especially NFT) to store features on the map, like points, lines, and areas.
Imagine a map framework that lets you buy a marker for your business, complete all the info, then apply it in any web map app that implements the framework; you can carry all your info, your reviews, in your Ethereum account, and share it in as many maps as you want.
Another cool use of this framework can be for city maintenance: every culvert, every storm drainage, traffic light, etc, has its own NFT. Each NFT can be associated with several metadata, as last maintenance date, current status, date it went into service, date it was taken out of service, and so on.
Yet another use: a geographic like alla Pokémon GO. You can put several characters on the map, construct an app around it, and use the framework to determine position and ownership.
