“Hivemapper Unveils Cutting-Edge Bee Dashcam: The Ultimate Challenger to Google’s Map Empire”

Hivemapper Bee
Mapping startup Hivemapper will launch a new dashcam later this year that its co-founder believes will speed up efforts to claw market share away from Google. The new Hivemapper Bee camera, revealed Wednesday, is part of the company’s years-long push to decentralize mapping and make map data more affordable and accessible. Late last year the company launched Scout, a “location monitoring tool” that lets customers “mark” a location and receive images every time a Hivemapper driver passes by. The company says the Bee will create higher-quality map data that is less likely to be rejected upon submission. Nelson says there are plenty of people who want to buy a Hivemapper camera for other reasons.
