Ways to Contribute

There are many ways to contribute to the Hivemapper Network
Contributors can earn HONEY by performing any of these activities:
  • Map Coverage - Collecting quality imagery using an Open Dashcam supported device
  • Map Coverage Quality Assurance - Validating the quality of collected imagery
  • Map Annotation - Providing annotations or annotation corrections
  • Map Processing and Validation - Providing resources for operating the network infrastructure and validating quality signals
The largest amount of HONEY will initially be allocated towards Map Coverage; these contributions earn approximately 90% of rewards minted. As the map matures over time, token rewards are expected to shift towards quality assurance and map annotation.
The other 10% of HONEY minted each week is an "operational reward" for ensuring the ongoing operation of the Hivemapper Network. This reward compensates Hivemapper Inc. for the costs incurred to process and store millions of images, among other things. Please reach out to the Hivemapper Foundation if your organization is interested in helping to operate the network.
The exact number of HONEY tokens minted as contributor rewards each week will depend on Global Map Progress. The amount of HONEY tokens an individual contributor might expect to receive during a given week also depends on other factors.
