We ♡ OpenStreetMap

Street-level imagery and computer vision in the open map of the world: by the community, for the community

Mapillary's commitment to OpenStreetMap

Mapillary imagery and data is always free and open for OpenStreetMap. Mapillary maintains integrations with Rapid Editor, iD Editor, and JOSM for viewing imagery and AI extracted point data including traffic signs, street assets, and infrastructure. Mapillary can be used to verify map data, add new attributes or geometry, and get a real world look at places on OpenStreetMap.

We work closely with people and organizations in the OpenStreetMap network to build better tools for using Mapillary images and data, and anyone can contribute to this process. We’re committed to supporting OpenStreetMap. Mapillary data is also used in OsmoseQA, MapRoulette, OsmAnd and other community tools, and Mapillary supports the OSM community at various conferences, events, and organizational levels.

Rights for OpenStreetMap

You have the right to use any Mapillary image for editing and deriving metadata for the purpose of contributing content to OpenStreetMap. Such metadata could be street numbers, road signs, street names, building descriptions, road conditions etc. Derived metadata may be published directly to OpenStreetMap under the OpenStreetMap Foundation contributor terms. Mapillary images are available under an open license (CC BY-SA).

Mapillary appreciates attribution for derived metadata, for example using the tag source=Mapillary or by linking to mapillary.com. This is also a useful way for us to track and understand what type of data and images are most useful for OSM, and build tools accordingly.

Start accessing imagery and map data

Mapillary is the platform that makes street-level images and map data available to scale and automate mapping. We’re committed to building a global service for everyone.
