Making a global map.

Built by all of us, accessible to everyone

Our story

Hivemapper is a decentralized mapping network designed to build and update the world's most important information - a map of the world that all humans share.

Hivemapper's new mapping economy shares the economic benefits of the global map with those that build the map. What could be more human than for humans to own the map of the physical earth that we humans are deeply integrated to in the most basic of ways.
