360 degree cameras are a great way to collect photos to help add data to OpenStreetMap. We have purchased an LG 360 camera that is available to rent to OSM UK members living within the UK, Isle of Man or Channel Islands (become a member).
Rental is for a period of 3 weekends and costs £12.00. This should give you plenty of time to get out and about with the camera over the weekends or on the weekdays in-between. The charge is made up of delivery and return delivery (£3.90 + £3.90) and fee (£4.20) that goes towards covering the cost of this scheme.
We include a monopole and memory card with the camera. To upload your photos to a service such as Mapillary (for later use in OpenStreetMap) you will need also need a computer.
