About Mapillary

Who we are

Mapillary brings together a global network of contributors who want to make the world accessible to everyone by visualizing the world and building better maps. Anyone can join and collect street-level images, using simple tools like smartphones or action cameras. With computer vision, we connect images across time and space to create immersive street-level views and extract map data.

We believe that people and organizations working together in the open is the best way to collect, visualize and understand data about our world. Mapillary is based on the idea of contributors with various motives sharing data and helping each other.

Our team’s mission is to build technology and tools to help understand the world’s places through images and make this data available. We want everyone to be able to use our data to make better maps, create a safer traffic environment, develop our cities, visualize places and stories, and help people in vulnerable places.

Since 2013

190 countries

Mapillary started in 2013 with the goal of making street-level imagery and map data available to everyone. Mapillary joined Facebook (now Meta) in 2020.

Mapillary members have contributed more than two billion images in countries all over the world.


You can grab Mapillary merch like T-shirts, hats, stickers, and more. We also invite you to find us at conferences or online events where we often give out SWAG to the Mapillary community.
