Making an accessible global map, built by all of us

overview

What could be more human than for us to own a map of the world we belong to?

Hivemapper is a decentralized, ever-updating map built by people, using dashcams, who soon will mine our cryptocurrency, HONEY.

This new mapping economy represents a fundamental shift
in how maps are built and who owns them, sharing the economic benefits of a global map with those who are building it.
