How about we just build geometry files into the road, and charge a reasonable (miniscule) fee to access that file each time it’s needed?

This has a number of benefits, including not having to constantly update the maps on the fly, not having to have a cell connection for each vehicle, not having to track, organize, and backhaul billions of tiny map shards, and more.

It also makes a difficult task — identifying the presence of utility crews or contractors — into one that is native and trivial.

It also addresses the need to repeatedly change lane markings during an extended construction process.
