Hi FOAM Team and community,
Congrats on the successful unlocking of the tokens and listing on Polo!
The way I see it, the current map with very scarce POIs(compared to map apps that we normally use, that is) would serve very little purpose for the user.
My idea is, rather than starting from scratch as we did, is there a way where we can migrate all the legacy POI data from Google(or any other centralized map data) to FOAM Maps? Then, the role that cartographers play to make a decent map would be to fix and add on to a viable map rather than a vast blank space with a looooot to do.
The obvious benefit would be that FOAM map will be much more closer to actual user adoption, although the lacking of map features still make it a less attractive option for users.
One side benefit that we can enjoy from this would be that, by rewarding users who fix the migrated centralized data points, we can have additional incentives for cartographers to improve the decentralized FOAM map. Here, the reward should be given by the FOAM team/foundation.
Any comments & ideas would be welcome.
