A behind-the-scenes look at computer vision technology used to generate map data at scale from street-level imagery. At Mapillary we collect images from a wide range of sources and make them available to OpenStreetMap in the iD and JOSM editors. We also make lots of machine-generated map data available to the community. This visual lightning talk shows how this is done behind the scenes and how you can access the data for OpenStreetMap editing.
