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 Editing and Annotationtraining Map AI by annotating and editing the map data.
  • Map Processing and Validation – Providing resources for operating the network infrastructure and validating quality signals.
These activities will be rewarded with 90% of the HONEY minted each week. The largest amount of HONEY will initially be allocated toward Map Coverage. As the map matures over time, token rewards are expected to shift toward 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 individual factors such as the freshness of their routes and the quality of their submissions.
