Main Objectives

There already has been much data added to the map in Guatemala including the major highway network and main cities, but there is still much more work needed. Entire populated areas (towns and villages) are yet remaining to be mapped. Many minor roads, rivers and other easily visible on satellite imagery features all throughout the country that still need to be added to this project.

Data Entry

  • Points of Interest (POI)
  • Roads (highway)
  • Edificios (building)
  • Áreas (area)

Helpful Tools

  • Mapillary
  • OpenStreetCam

We need to get more and better, up-to-date on-ground imagery in order to adequately map this country. YOU can help us accomplish this by using the Mapillary or OpenStreetCam apps, available for iOS and Android, which allow you to upload geo-referenced images from any smartphone. These image sequences can be taken on foot or while driving any car, bus, motorcycle or bicycle. Then, when uploaded, may be view through the website or directly on the OpenStreetMap editors. You just need to follow a few basic rules to get good useful imagery and help us map to out this beautiful country.
