The source of truth for global map progress.
Hexes are the atomic unit of the map, based on the H3 hexagonal hierarchical geospatial indexing system. Small H3 cells are intentionally used as the basis for the Hivemapper Network’s map tiles to avoid issues with “partial” tile contributions.
Examples of map tiles, covered and uncovered, in different map styles.
When imagery is submitted for a given location, pink hexes will appear to represent the mapped area. The fresher the coverage, the brighter the shade of pink. Although there is lag time between when imagery is submitted and when pink hexes appear, this allows members of the community to visualize map coverage within any region of the world.
