How to improve accuracy of GPS and GNSS

Post by carambola » Sun Oct 13, 2019 4:27 pm

Hi all.
Accuracy of GPS is several meters and I need to improve accuracy to 1 foot.
I read that by using GNSS in some new smartphones I can get better accuracy.
Does anyone have any experience with these new smartphones?
Livecode can manage data coming from the new GNSS system ?

A quick review of search results from DuckDuckGo suggests the accuracy of commercial-grade GPS is currently limited to a few meters.

I would imagine that could be refined with triangulation from local sensors, but that would require additional site-specific hardware and much custom coding.
