Basemaps

Grow your very own map on top of a collection of basemaps — LiDAR, Satellite, OpenStreetMap, and more.

Basemaps are the foundation for creating your map

Basemaps are an important ingredient in improving the absolute accuracy of your 3D maps. Instead of relying on hardware like high precision GPS or ground-based geo reference points we use a combination of LiDAR, Satellite, and Digital Elevation Model (DEM) to georegister videos and build a single global map.

Basemaps deliver situational context to map users

Street Labels and Places help you understand where you are as you navigate the map.

View LiDAR so you have complete context on the shape of a building or other objects when your 3d map is incomplete.

Digital Elevation Model helps you see how the terrain is shaped.

Basemaps provide another source of data for Change Detection

Upload video to Hivemapper in an area with LiDAR basemap coverage and Change Detection works against the LiDAR helping you see changes in all 3-dimension.
