Coverage Map

  • In our Hivemapper Contributor App, the Map shows you all the coverage that has been made by our contributors.
  • You can decide which contributions to show or hide in the Filters menu.

Your Contributions

  • Displays your contributions in green tracks as well as the estimated number of tiles mapped.
  • Your Contributions includes uploaded content - where that content has been rewarded map tiles
Show or hide Your Contributions by using the Filters

Recent Activity

Keep track of where you are mapping with Current Activity turned on.
  • Current Activity shows you your current activity in blue tracks helping you efficiently map new areas
  • It displays total distance covered, e.g. 0.1 km in the screenshot below
Current Activity does not directly translate into map coverage. That will depend on the specific area you are mapping and how much pre-existing coverage already exists there.
The tracks show your direction which is helpful on wide streets where you may need to cover both directions to earn the most number of tiles in that area.

Future enhancements

The Hivemapper app will expand to support:
  • The Hivemapper Dashcam
  • Passive Upload - to make it easier for you to upload your footage
