Mapillary Partners with Esri to Provide Real-Time Street Photos

October 14, 2015  - By


Mapillary, a community-based mapping photo app, is partnering with Esri to help governments and businesses see their cities evolve in real-time through the ArcGIS platform integration.

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, assess sites for public transportation projects, and more.

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.
