Dash cameras can simplify collecting fresh imagery coverage. They are easy to install, mount, operate, and can be used for hours of continuous operation, making them an ideal camera choice for both personal and commercial vehicles.
Mapillary supports BlackVue DR900S, a customized high-resolution and high-performance dashcam that is optimized for mapping.
This device has a 4K resolution (equivalent to 8-megapixel imagery), which is ideal for data collection in use cases ranging from navigational routing to parking and last-mile delivery efforts. BlackVue videos are supported in our Desktop Uploader, allowing for an easy and low-touch upload process.
The camera is available for ordering directly from Mapillary (for the price of $480). We ship it as a complete kit with all the accessories needed (such as an SD card) and the camera preconfigured to be used for mapping.
Note. If you purchase this camera from another supplier, you have to make sure to get all the accessories and do the correct configuration yourself. See the BlackVue article for more details.
You may be able to also use other dashcams to contribute to Mapillary, provided that the device records GPS data in a machine-readable format such as CSV, text file, or GPX file. In that case, you will have to use our command line tools to upload the video files, as our Desktop Uploader has video support only for the BlackVue.
