Crowd-Sourced Mapillary Teaming Up With Esri
Collaboration will lead to ArcGIS integration
Mapillary, a community-based mapping photo app, is teaming up with Esri, a world leader in geographic information system (GIS) software, web GIS and geodatabase management applications. They will help governments and businesses see their cities evolve in real time through the ArcGIS platform integration.
With ArcGIS support, Mapillary users will be able to
- Navigate photos in a web-based viewer
- Load any ArcGIS data layer or base map
- Use Mapillary street level photos to edit and update their data
- Automatically sync edits back to ArcGIS Online
Mapillary creates detailed maps that go beyond street view by instantly stitching together hundreds of thousands of crowd-sourced photos, giving cities the ability to gain insights immediately rather than weeks or months later. The ArcGIS integration provides governments and cities with a tool to help them manage inventory and city assets, monitor repairs, inspect pavement quality, and assess sites for public transportation projects.
