100mpx image resolution limit should be raised for 360 panoramas


Now I’m uploading thousands 360 panoramas of scenic outdoors locations and got stuck in a little problem. I cannot upload my latest panoramas taken with drone DJI Mavic 3 as their resolution is 103 megapixels, but Mapillary has the limit of 100 megapixels.

This means I need to shrink images, but doing so will drastically reduce the details of distant objects which is very important thing in aerial panoramas, when travelers or hunters are able to zoom it in and carefully examine distant terrain to plan their offroad navigation in wilderness areas.

I’d suggest Mapillary developers either to increase image resolution limit to suit modern cameras, or, as it was implemented in google maps, to set file size limit instead of megapixels limit (googlemaps accept any image up to 75mb file size without resolution limit).

Thank you for your attention!

Thanks for reporting. Could you share a Google Drive link to an original file? Looking online it seems to suggest that the resolution of a DJI Mavic 3 should be 20MP?

This is an example of 360 photosphere from Mavic 3:

103mp is the default resolution for photospheres in all Mavic 3 drones.

Got it, thanks so much for the quick reply. We will investigate whether we can raise this limit.
