Facebook has acquired Swedish mapping technology company Mapillary, which collects images from tens of thousands of contributors to build immersive and up-to-date maps. While the acquisition price was not disclosed, Mapillary has raised $24.5M from investors over the last 7 years. Mapillary’s users will still be able to continue uploading imagery and using the map data from images on the platform.
