Did you know there's an #opensource equivalent to Google Street View? It's called #OpenStreetCam, mapping the world's roads with dashcam images, and uses machine learning & computer vision to improve #OpenStreetMaps. It's easy to get started, so check it out and contribute today! All you need is a phone, a car, and a mount.
Recently, Telenav has partnered with Waylens to create customised cams to contribute with. This box just arrived over the weekend :) Happy mapping!
@alrs I've installed it from yalp on LineageOS without gapps and no micro g either.
As far as I am aware OSC and telenav are well aware of their remaining proprietary blobs and they are working to remove them.
@thinkMoult not just blobs, if you follow the issue it turns out they stopped publishing source code two releases back.
@qwazix yeah itowns is great. Sydney has open source point cloud lidar scans of the city!
Mapillary is closed, yes :(
@thinkMoult considering dashcams are illegal in germany, we seem to have a quite number of eager contributors here :/
@thinkMoult do you know where I can have a look at the backend code?
@thinkMoult Where can we read more on what's the kit is made of?
@thinkMoult Waiting for the open source version of waterboarding.
