Crowdsourcing may as well be the word and innovation of the year as many companies have embraced it, Mapillary being one of them. Mapillary is crowdsourcing map locations and street view pictures to make for a more complete map.

Google maps has become the go-to for urban and even global maps. While Google maps is incredibly powerful and useful, it doesn't catch everything. Mapillary is looking to fill in the patches that Google has missed with its flagship app.

The app is very simple. Users take photos of locations that they cannot find on Google maps and they upload it directly to Mapillary. With the ability to crowdsource the images users will never get lost or be devoid of direction when travelling ever again. All users need to use the app is a smartphone.
