Fly your drone to build the map

Fly your drone to build the map

We do the planning, you do the flying. Studio automatically creates flight-paths built for better mapping. Spend less time at your desk and more time out flying.

Get paid to fly

The Studio map is filled with high value tiles that pay out when you claim them. Every tile you fly adds to your total to earn milestone rewards and payments.

We are using Hivemapper across the globe to build maps wherever you live or travel.

Hivemapper takes more than just Studio flights — upload any drone footage and process it to add new landmarks and eye-catching content to the map.

Collects with a DJI Mavic Pro

Flying with Hivemapper has given me a way to do something I enjoy and generate some extra money at the same time. I never expected the sense of satisfaction I get seeing the maps created using footage I recorded!

It’s interesting to see what the the islands here look like from above. I’ve flown over it in his airplane tons, but to see it that low and in that level of detail in 3D is amazing.

I fly for Hivemapper for financial gain and the excitement of watching my drone footage turn into 3D maps that can be helpful to my community.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need a drone to earn money?

Yes. Currently you need a drone to collect with Studio. We support a wide range of drones that you can view here. Soon you will be able to map while you drive using the Open Dashcam.

Why build a new global map?

The map you collect enables business and organizations to use fresh maps for the purposes of navigation and monitoring without the need for specialized sensors and expensive satellites.

How much can I earn?

Earn as much as you want. Your earning potential will depend on weather, location, and how efficient you are. With gold tiles and our bonus system any collector can earn up to $300 per week flying only 2 hours a day.

I don’t see any gold tiles in my city, does that mean I can’t map?

Every location is important to us, our gold tiles highlight where the demand is highest. Our map is always expanding, so make sure to submit your city in our request survey linked here.
