Mapbox is an open source platform for designing and publishing maps and geographical data for both mobile and on the web. On Mapbox.com you can sign up and create a map within minutes, then simply embed the map via copy/paste on the web or build complex applications for web or mobile with it. Power anything from the contact page on a small blog to data visualizations of billions of data points to base maps for massive traffic on large scale sites.
We started Mapbox to make it easy for anyone to design and publish a beautiful custom map. Our platform gives developers the power to make maps that embody their product and brand. Mapbox helps you find bars on foursquare, search for hotels on Hipmunk, and organize notes in Evernote. With our global, autoscaling infrastructure and cross-device compatibility, integrating our maps into your apps is easy even if you have millions of users. Over the last 3 years our team of dedicated cartographers, data analysts, and software engineers has built our entire stack using open source software and open data.
