Mapbox is the location data platform for mobile and web applications. We provide building blocks to add location features like maps, search, and navigation into any experience you create.

Presence in: Canada, India, Peru, United States
Focus: Access to Information, Community / Customary Land Rights, Economic Empowerment, Education, Environmental Justice, Governance, Health, Housing & Sanitation, Labor & Employment, Land & Natural Resources, Other

Location is built into the fabric of our daily experiences. Whether you’re exploring a city with Lonely Planet, seeing if it’s going to rain on Weather.com, tracking breaking news on Bloomberg, or checking your ETA in Lyft — location is essential to every one of these applications, and they’re powered by Mapbox.

We craft beautiful maps and developer-friendly location data, APIs, and SDKs so that you’re free to focus on designing, building, and developing your application. Our open-source tools let analytics companies understand big geo data, drone companies publish flyovers, real estate sites visualize properties, satellite companies process cloud-free imagery, and insurance companies track assets.

Mapbox proudly embraces our open-source roots. We work in the open and release as much code as possible. We believe it’s the right thing for people, technology, and business.
