Hi Kevin MacLeod. Thanks for the thoughtful comments! Street View is indeed a thing of beauty, since the data is collected by high-end equipment that Google owns and controls. The device-agnostic approach that Mapillary takes can't match that level of quality, but has its own set of advantages: when you can create your own street view, you can control where, when and how often you capture it. (And, unlike Google, you can actually license the imagery and data for your GIS work). Creating street-level imagery for public viewing on Mapillary is free for everyone: individuals, government, even for commercial businesses. (We hope to get more local governments contributing public photos to drive open data efforts.) We charge for viewing the imagery in private projects or within your own tools -- e.g. ArcGIS. This means: the widget for ArcGIS is free for testing and development, but would be priced on a monthly subscription plan in production. The Uber/Lyft idea is great. We can think of a number of municipal services with fleets that we'd like to "borrow" e.g., public buses, taxicabs, delivery, garbage haulers, parking enforcers. Imagine getting fresh, daily street views of your town just from a garbage hauler making its rounds every day. Thanks for the great questions. 1 Comment Collapse
