who is to say that the chips are all different, I bet some of these end up in dogs and cats. The superman3 computer needs to know the difference between pet and human.
RFID chips are either passive or active. Active is self-powered and passive need to be activated/read by an external scan.
Picture a satellite in geosync orbit over an area. It illuminates the area activating all the RFIDs in the area, probably millions, and local ground scanners gather up the info. They can burst scan during rush hour or run long scans at night when we sleep. Once they have all areas scanned they can compile a plethora of biological information to be reviewed on an individual or mass scale.
And why would they wanna do this? What kind of biological info can they gather, and for what purpose? Someone might want to buy this information.

And you can't embed a GPS receiver in an implant either, for various reasons, but chief among them: size, power requirements, the fact that the GPS signal is absorbed by your body, and last but not least - let's say you DID magically have a GPS chip in you - all it could do is tell YOU where YOU were at. They don't broadcast anything. So now, not only do you have to have a GPS chip (which won't work anyway) you also have to have a radio transmitter.
sorry its real
I think you are loosing track of how the system tracks people. Imagine a grided city with a rfid reading checkpoint at each lighted intersection.
Passive RFID tags. Passive RFID tags can be as small as 0.3mm and do not require batteries. Rather, they are powered by the radio signal of a RFID reader, which "wakes them up" to request a reply. Passive RFID tags can be read from a distance of about 20 feet.
Active RFID tags. Active RFID tags, also called transponders because they contain a transmitter that is always "on", are powered by a battery, about the size of a coin, and are designed for communications up to 100 feet from the RFID reader. They are larger and more expensive than passive RFID tags, but can hold more data about the product and are commonly used for high-value asset tracking

can someone tell me where you can buy one of these scanners?
you have to monitor these seven billion, give or take, people.
It would take a cast of billions to monitor even the filtered information
and make the decision if it was useful information or not.
the chips HAVE to be different due to their nature. each one has
to have an individual frequency or its not a tracking chip.
The only way they would serve a purpose would be if they were directly linked to the INDIVIDUAL in each case. Eg..credit card purchase. Even then there is no guarantee that the purchaser is the user.
matched to the holder at a later date?
doesn't have anti-collision algorithms so it's only useable in a point-of-sale environment, you can't use them en masse
Not true. All it needs is a unique identifier.
