Mount the camera, capture as you go

Just put the BlackVue on the windscreen and drive your planned routes. The camera collects images passively, with no extra effort from you.

Upload images to turn them into data

Use our tools to quickly and securely transfer images to Mapillary where they’re blurred for privacy, combined into 3D views, and analyzed to extract data.

Use imagery and data in mapping workflows

Imagery and data available for updating maps and location datasets in OpenStreetMap editors and HERE Map Creator, ArcGIS and QGIS, or your custom tools.

The Mapillary Dashcam is optimized for collecting data for mapping and navigation

High-quality imagery for mapping

Great detail from 4K Ultra HD video and a wide-angle view, combined with location information from built-in GPS. Custom frame rates enable full days of capture.

Easy installation on any vehicle

Adhesive mount makes it easy to adjust to all windshields with various degrees of slant. Powered via a 12V port (cigarette lighter) or a hardwired solution for permanent installations.

End-to-end security and privacy

Add extra security with data encryption on the camera. Videos are decrypted only in the Mapillary cloud, where privacy blurring is applied before imagery is made available.
