On demand mapping


Burts is a tool for requesting on-demand and targeted mapping in a specific location from the Hivemapper Network.

If Hivemapper does not yet have coverage in a specific location or the coverage is not sufficiently fresh, one can pay a small fee to notify and request the network of mappers to provide coverage.

The before and after example below demonstrates how Bursted increased coverage of a neighborhood.

How it Works

  1. Identify the locations you want Bursted

  2. Hivemapper contributors are notified via the app of new Bursted locations in their area (gold icons)

  3. If a Bursted location is mapped, one pays a small incremental fee.

How to Use Bursts

Today, Bursts are not yet self-serve and require direct engagement with the Hivemapper team. Please contact hi@hivemapper.com to deploy Bursts.
