What is Hivemapper?
Hivemapper is a new way of building maps of the world.
The project is called Hivemapper because it is like a beehive.
A beehive makes honey by having thousands of bees fly around and collect nectar from flowers.
By working together, all the bees in the community get to enjoy some delicious honey.
How does it work
Hivemapper makes maps by having thousands of people use a dashcam to take images of the world while they drive.
By working together, all the people in the community get to share the fruit of their work:
A fresh and detailed map of the world. Anyone can see the current status of the map using a website called Hivemapper Explorer.
When members of the community do things that make the map more useful, they get a crypto token called HONEY. A crypto token is a digital currency that can be exchanged or traded. HONEY tokens have value because redeeming HONEY tokens is the only way to access Hivemapper’s useful map data.
Plug and play
Hivemapper Dashcam is plug and play. All you need is a smartphone and the Hivemapper Dashcam app installed.
Once you have the app, you simply mount your smartphone on your car’s dashboard and start driving.
The app will automatically start recording video and collecting data about the road network.
