Mapxus is composed of two elements – Map and Beehive (originates from the Latin name “Alvus”). It is based on an analogy that considers each single building as a cell of map and the collection of all buildings as a hive of maps. In real world, honeybees play different roles for their colony e.g. some gather nectars from flowers and some build the hive. Different kinds of honeybees collectively form a large distributed collaboration network to effectively produce honeys for various uses of their colony. That’s also the way Mapxus works with the communities, that is, each of us plays a role and together we produce map honeys for public use.
Also, we emphasize the “us” element in the name because it is a concerted effort from everyone in the world to co-create a smarter city through a range of indoor mapping technology solutions offered by Mapxus.
