Announcing Mapillary for ArcGIS
Today we're pleased to announce the release of Mapillary for ArcGIS!
Last June we attended the 2015 Esri UC in San Diego. One of our favorite encounters there was with Ashley from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), who came to find us after hunting for a "DIY street view" solution to track pollutants in rivers. It turns out many organizations like MPCA are looking beyond existing solutions for street level coverage that they can control, whether it's because they need more recent coverage, or have to deal with unusual terrain, or need frequent updates (e.g. to observe pre-/post project or seasonal effects), or want to get their communities involved.
Fast forward three months later and we're now addresssing this with an app that combines what we do best -- stitching together images from any source, including smartphones and action cameras -- with Esri's knowhow of GIS use cases. Esri has been a hugely supportive partner, from giving us detailed product and technical feedback to showcasing us at their events.
Mapillary for ArcGIS uses Esri's secure OAuth to authenticate ArcGIS users, then provides them with a Mapillary viewer to pull in their GIS data. Features can be added and edited directly against corresponding street photos. All updates are synced back to ArcGIS.
If you use ArcGIS Online, you can learn more about Mapillary for ArcGIS here or at the ArcGIS Marketplace. For more detailed information on how the app works, take a look at the current tutorial. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to give it a whirl!
