Posted on 22 August 2018 in DIY • 8 min read

Mapillary est un service permettant de prendre et partager des photos prises directement au niveau de la rue. Les photos partagées sont traitées par Mapillary (qui vend des traitements de photos prises dans la rue pour notamment en extraire de l’information) et disponibles pour tous sous une licence Creative Commons. Les photos (et une partie des résultats de traitement, dont les panneaux par exemple) sont également utilisables directement pour éditer OpenStreetMap. Plus d’informations sur le service sont disponibles dans cet article de linuxfr.
