Company

Business description: Hivemapper is a developer of 3D maps to help drone pilots avoid crashing into buildings. We developed a mapping and navigation service to make it easy for drone fliers to plan better, explore further, and fly safer. We are mapping the entire earth for drone fliers and making the information easily accessible for all to use and contribute to across the web, mobile, and drones. We are building the ‘Google Maps for drone fliers.' Imagine if Google Maps was built from the perspective of flying drones (three dimensional) rather than cars and pedestrians (two dimensional). We are building a three dimensional model of the earth with absolutely insane levels of detail about buildings, antennas, etc. and infusing the drone with this valuable information. So, when you fly your drone will know exactly how many feet it is from a building or bridge, how far away it from an amazing place of interest, and the height it needs to fly at to clear the antenna structure. With over 20 million buildings and antenna structures mapped with boundaries and heights and 15 million places of interest in the United States, Hivemapper is the leading source of information for drone fliers.
