Dynamic Map Platform Co. was established in June 2016 as a joint venture between Japanese investors, map providers and vehicle manufacturers to begin underwriting and innovating in the world of high-definition maps and geolocation services. The first project was to provide high-definition maps to aid in autonomous shuttles at the Tokyo Olympics in 2021. 

In April 2019, DMP acquired Ushr, a North American company that had established itself as the leading provider of HD maps for advanced driver assistance technologies. 

Ushr was a spinoff from GeoDigital, a civil-engineering grade utility-mapping company. In 2023, Ushr changed its name to Dynamic Map Platform North America.

Globally, DMP has mapped more than 850,000 miles (1.38M km) of roads and aims to have 1.2M miles (1.9M km) mapped by the end of 2025.
