Mapbox is a mapping platform for developers. Its building blocks make it easy to integrate location into any mobile or online application. From finding a coffee spot on Foursquare, to pinning a vacation spot on Pinterest, to geo-tagging notes in Evernote – the Company does the geo stuff, so that developers can focus on building their apps. Mapbox is the foundation for other platforms, letting enterprises analyze their data, drone companies publish flyovers, real estate sites visualize properties, satellite companies process cloud-free imagery, and insurance companies track assets.
