Forgive my ignorance, but what is the motivation of the current iteration of OpenStreetView when there is Mapillary?

Please, this is really a question, I'm not trying to start a flame war or something. But I don't understand why there are two competitors of (AFAICT) freely available street level images. I just couldn't see the difference between the projects. Thanks in advance. --Nighto (talk) 19:47, 22 September 2016 (UTC)

Re: Motivation

What's the point of having OpenStreetMap, when there's bing? What's the point of having Bing when there's google? Each offers it's own advantages and if one service dies it can still fill the need. Think if mapillary died tomorrow is there another project to go to? Nope.
