The Mapilio project, which I have been following for a while and think is promising, recently published a page explaining how they provide data to OpenStreetMap. Sometimes the upload time may take longer, but since it is in beta, I think it is acceptable. It looks like a new player is joining this industry. I would like to hear the experiences and thoughts of people who have tried the application.
I am considering taking some personal time to compare the post-upload resolution between Mapilio and Mapillary.
The linked page seems entirely content-free. is there a page anywhere that explains how they provide data to OpenStreetMap?
Can you share updated information here when you reach the necessary data level?
I only have the information on this page, but I’ll leave a Discord link for you where you can ask any questions you have
That’s not going to happen - I don’t have enough time to follow every $random_external_project’s private communications channel. They appear to be using OSM to market themselves - I was merely asking if there was anything public to back that up. I’m guessing that the answer is “no”.
Their terms & conditions do not mention OSM use at all. Combined with the above-average aggressiveness of those terms (“Except for the license you grant below, you do NOT retain all rights in and to your User Content” - emphasises on NOT is theirs, not mine), as well as general closed-source approach (even worse then Mapillary/Kartaview) I do not hold much hope of their usefulness to OpenStreetMap users, unfortunately.
This clause seems to preclude using Mapilio imagery to contribute edits to OSM “You will not: Modify the Mapilio Services, remove any proprietary rights notices or markings, or otherwise make any derivative works based upon the Mapilio Services;” Dissapointing. I agree with @Matija_Nalis
I found this license page Mapilio | Licenses And Rights
It says :
Any images on Mapilio are released under a CC-BY-SA license
CC-BY-SA is incompatible with ODbL (and additionally problematic with OSM CT)
As tyr_asd noted in Add mapilio data by channel-s · Pull Request #9664 · openstreetmap/iD · GitHub they have a separate page on their website Mapilio | Data for OpenStreetMap that explicitly allows using their images to contribute to OSM.
They updated their terms and conditions to explicitly mention and allow the usage for contributing to OSM:
Thanks for update! Unfortunately, the updated terms (as written) still seem incompatible with OSM
