Contributing Data To Navigate Maps
Now that you have your Navigate account set up and you are ready to contribute, click on the “Upload Aerial Imagery ” or “Upload Street-Level Imagery” (depending on the data you are uploading) in the dashboard. Here you will see a box that will allow you to upload your datasets.
Once your data is ready to be uploaded, just drag and drop the files into the upload box. Your files will be shown like this:
Before submitting a “collection”, you can choose to add more images by clicking the ‘Add Files’ bottom at the end of the page, or remove images by using the ‘X’ button on the side of each file. When you are done with selecting your files and are ready to upload the collection, then click on the upload button.
Once your data has been uploaded, you can view your collection in your dashboard by clicking “Go To Your Uploads”.
You can see details of each collection by clicking on any dataset you uploaded. You will then see the status of your collection (pending, accepted, rejected, or partially accepted) and the metadata of each image you contributed.
Once your images have been reviewed, you will also be able to see which images were accepted and/or rejected. Reasons for rejection can be seen by hovering over each specific image.
Once your images have been accepted, you will be able to see the NVG8 tokens you earned for each accepted image!
All NVG8 token rewards will be distributed on the Polygon network. If you contributed to Navigate Maps while connected to Arbtirum One, please be sure to switch networks from Arbitrum One to Polygon in MetaMask to view your NVG8 balance.
Please note, it may take up to a few days for the status of the images to show-up on your dashboard, depending on the size of the upload. Once the status is accepted and the images are approved, please allow up to 1 hour for the rewards to appear in your wallet.
Now, you can keep contributing and earning NVG8 tokens!
