[REQUEST] Data export

Will Mapilio provide a way to export user data? This means all uploaded images by the user too.

Hello Retiolus,

Regarding your inquiry about exporting user data from Mapilio, including all uploaded images by the user, I can confirm that the necessary data has been sent to you via email. Please check your inbox for further details.

Best regards.

As you disclose the status of private and internal user requests, I would like to do the same:

After 5 mails, the only thing I received is a data.json (FeatureCollection) which contains the information about the images I uploaded, but not the images. Mapilio would like me to set up a program myself to download all the images? " Your data is available in the attached json file and you can access your image through the following link: https://cdn.mapilio.com/im/uploaded_hash/filename/2080, using the upload hash and filename." (These images are converted to .webp and no longer have the original tags.)

Piece of json:

    "type": "Feature",
    "geometry": {
      "type": "Point",
      "coordinates": [4.XXX, 49.XXX]
    "properties": {
      "heading": 28.417297363281,
      "resolution": "2560x1440",
      "device_make": "XXX",
      "device_model": "XXX",
      "altitude": 139.5,
      "fov": 70.5,
      "filename": "no0lx1681397980.jpeg",
      "uploaded_hash": "53616c7465645f5fff5ad8c741c649bee6cd350fd834404f7e3347a04fdfc5f15142a2db090e3407662ddf0b99eb9f11",
      "created_at": "2023-04-13T15:11:36",
      "created_by_id": 463

In the last email, they offer to give me a ZIP with all the images, which I have been asking for since the beginning.

Also, a privateExport.json file with data like IP = null.

And again after these 5 mails the answer is the same: “As per your request, we can provide you with a copy of the data we hold about your account. Please let us know which specific information you would like to receive, and we will be happy to provide it to you.”

My response:

The problem, which I have been telling you since my first email, is that I should not “specify the data I want”. You must, de facto, give me all the data you have about me.

So, to clearly answer the question “which specific information you would like to receive”: everything.

“we can create a zip file and send you a copy of the images”: this would be great.

I made a script to download all the images uploaded on Mapilio: retiolus/mapilio_downloader - mapilio_downloader - Codeberg.org

I will update the repo to explain how to find the user ID and use the script.

It would be much easier if Mapilio provided a way to do this and to be able to download the images with the original tags, if they are kept.
