Mapillary Upload API?

Hi everyone,

I want to build a Mapillary web app to POST sequences of 360’s (along with some other functionality).

I know Mapillary has an API to GET images (, but I want to upload sequences for which I cannot find any docs.

I know Mapillary tools exist to upload images from the command line ( and looking into the code seems to take advantage of upload endpoints.

My question being; is there publicly documented API endpoints for sequence/image uploads?

Great, maybe YOU can investigate why the desktop uploader stalls.
I hear nothing from Mapillary.

For what ti’s worth, I couldn’t find one awhile back. I feel like I saw something about there being one though.

You may want to check the mapillary_tools source code: it’s pure Python so the API they use to upload the pictures should be there for anyone to see.

Thanks @fgouget .

I was wondering if any of this was documented, but I guess it is semi-private for now.

I’ll take a look at the mapillary_tools code base and see if I can get it working and will share anything I develop here. Stay tuned…

Mapillary team – I know it must be a busy time for you with the FB announcement. Congratulations. My question being; are there plans to change the API? I am about to invest time in building a product around it in the coming weeks and want to make sure things are not going to disappear overnight.

Hi there,

The API will continue to be supported. No changes there.
And I’m happy to report that upload documentation is now available here.

These forums aren’t actively monitored by the Mapillary team so best to reach us via for speedy responses.

Brilliant, thanks @eneerhut this is great news. Thanks for this release… now to get building :slight_smile:
