Mapillary is a finalist in “Graphic Design and Data Visualization” category in Fast Company’s Design Awards, you can take a look at the other finalists here. For what is worth, I will be talking in Budapest a little bit of our redesign and design process at Mobilweekend this coming Thursday. See you there!

We’re in the last stretches to finish up the new product, so take one good look again on the current one. update: it’s out, I’m writing a detailed article on the design decisions. In the mean time you can access the old site here.
A startup out of Malmo, Sweden called Mapillary is using crowdsourced photos to create an open source, B2B database to compete with Google’s Street View, and today the company announced a Series A round of funding from an impressive list of backers to help make that ambition a reality.
The $8 million from Atomico, Sequoia, LDV Capital, and PlayFair will be used to expand operations outside of its home base of Malmo, including a new office in San Francisco, and also to hire more staff, such as computer vision engineers to supercharge the kind of data that can been gleaned from Mapillary’s image library.
Fantastic news to come to work to.
