In recent days, EU, Russia, China and Japan develop their own navigation satellite system. As a result, we can use several type of satellite systems other than GPS from USA.

How we can use these satellite systems (Global Navigation Satellite System:GNSS) for the mapping? I will Introduce some devices and free software that is good for openstreetmap mapping activities.

I'd also like to discuss how we can use it for a quality of the map.

The presentation includes my experience with Android device and GNSS bluetooth receiver.
