Hi Mapillary team/users
As the upload speed is very slow (around 75-80 Kb/s) in the area I live (West Midlands in UK), I want to use the Setting in Android app to use Low-res images.
Anyone know what the consequence for Mapillary and downstream map makers for having to use low-res images?
I know why the option is made available in the app, but that’s not my question. I want to know specifically, if the low-res images are ‘good enough’ for sub-sequent users and companies (like HERE) who might be making use of the images to help create digital maps.
I’m going to a Middle-Eastern country for 10 days, where they have littele or no coverage, and capture images while I’m there travelling. My guesstimate is that if I use the max resolution of 13Mp from my phone camera, I will end up with 50-60 Gb image data. I don’t want to then spend the entire next month uploading those images if I use the max resolution of my phone camera.
