One of the expensive problems in mapping: keeping maps updated with “street level data” about signs, addresses etc.

Companies like Apple and Alphabet Inc -- send out fleets of vehicles outfitted with cameras and other sensors to gather images + fetch user data posted on their platforms.

Mapillary - crowdsources images, ingesting pictures contributed from smart phones and other types of cameras.

Why then sell to Facebook crowdsourced intelligence?
