Mapillary Image Quality

An question I’ve been wondering about myself came up on Facebook this week:

What quality does Mapillary render photos (on their web app and Mapillary JS)?

Similarly, I believe Google Street View also downscales. What is the quality of GSV images?

Maybe the answer to these questions is; it depends (i.e. quality is determined by bandwidth).

A bit more research on this…

For Mapillary it appears they will load higher resolution on request (when you zoom in). See:

For Google it appears images are rendered in quadrants and the quality depends on the users connection speed. See:
