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. 1.
    Identify the locations you want Bursted
  2. 2.
    Hivemapper contributors are notified via the app of new Bursted locations in their area (gold icons)
  3. 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 [email protected] to deploy Bursts.
