Subscriptions give you the right for commercial use of Mapillary imagery and derived map data. To get a subscription, you first need to define a shape, i.e. your area of interest.
There are three types of data you can subscribe to:
- Imagery: use Mapillary public imagery in your tools, apps, or websites, together with the right to derive data from it (such as edits to maps or GIS datasets). The subscription doesn't enable you to download the imagery.
- Object detections: find images that show certain objects. You get a dataset that shows the locations of images where our technology has automatically detected these objects. (Learn more about object detections and the available object classes.)
- Map features: position objects automatically on the map. You get a dataset that shows the estimated locations of the objects our technology has detected in images and triangulated on the map. (Learn more about map features and the available object classes.)
Once you have a subscription, you can download map data as GeoJSON or shapefile, and integrate Mapillary public imagery in your own apps, tools, or websites (you cannot download the imagery). You don’t need a subscription for using your own imagery (since it belongs to your organization).
Our subscriptions are yearly so you can download updates to the data (resulting from new imagery being added to the shape) as many times as you’d like throughout the subscription period. If you only want a one-time data dump, you still need to set up a subscription but can opt to download data only once.
In this article, we cover:
Only organization admins can add and manage subscriptions. Your subscription will be based on a shape so if you haven’t defined it yet, you need to do that first (find instructions here). Next, enter the map data view by clicking on the shape in the Shapes tab, and then choosing “Explore map data” (on smaller screens, you might need to scroll down in the sidebar to see that).
At this stage, you can explore the different types of data in your shape more closely: imagery, object detections, and map features. Then, click the “Subscribe to map data” button to choose your subscription plan. We will process your request, activate the subscription, and notify you once you can start using the data.
During the time that your request is still pending, you can also see a note about that in the shape list both on the Shapes tab on the profile and in the Shapes section on the dashboard.
To change your subscription, you need to be an admin. Open the shape from either in the Shapes tab on the organization profile or the Shapes section on the dashboard. Scroll down to see your current subscription. Click on it and you’ll be able to select a different plan by clicking the “Manage subscription” button.
Only admins can cancel subscriptions. Open the shape from either in the Shapes tab on the organization profile or the Shapes section on the dashboard. Scroll down to see your current subscription. Click on the “Manage subscription” button and you’ll be able to request canceling the current subscription.
While you can request canceling anytime, the subscription will run until the end of the current subscription period and will be canceled at the end of the period. This also means that the map data included in the plan will still be available to you until the subscription period runs out. After that, the subscription won’t be renewed and you lose access to new data. (Your previously extracted data files will still be accessible via the dashboard.)
You start a "Map Features: Traffic Signs" subscription on 1 January 2018, paying $4,000. On 1 July 2018, you cancel your subscription. You will not start a new subscription period on 1 January 2019. You still have access to all imagery and traffic sign updates in your shape until 1 January 2019 but not after that.
When you’ve requested canceling, you’ll see the subscription status on the dashboard and in the Shapes tab as “being canceled” until your subscription period runs out. During that time, you can reinstate the subscription to continue renewal, or change it to another type of subscription (the same way as if you hadn’t requested canceling). Just use the “Manage subscription” button again to access the plan chooser.
