Mapbox Solutions for the Public Sector

  • Mapbox Maps

    Mapbox provides developers, designers, and analysts with the map tools and libraries needed to make real-time, fast and customized maps to suit a broad range of public and private sector needs.

    A global, cloud-native platform:

    ● The Mapbox platform is built to scale up to 10x peak load. We regularly support 12M+ API calls a minute! (That’s over 17B API calls a day.)

    ● Mapbox maps update live through a global network of 10 data centers and 100 edge nodes, including a legal endpoint in China. Cars and devices connect to the closest node and access fresh data with 10-100ms latency at guaranteed 99.9% uptime.

    ● Mapbox APIs and SDKs are fully tested and come with comprehensive documentation. They are built for over-the-air updates, with new features and improvements pushed weekly.

    Solutions for online, on-premises or hybrid environments

    ● Customers can deploy as an online, cloud-based location data solution for web or mobile apps. Or they can choose to deploy Mapbox Atlas, an offline, on-premises version of Mapbox tools, which works anywhere, including laptops, physical servers, virtual machines, or private clouds.

    ● Mapbox Atlas works on VMware, AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and others. Securely run Atlas behind firewalls and on air gapped or classified networks.

    ○ Powered by Docker and Docker Compose,

    ○ Built-in support for both HTTPS and HTTP without a proxy server,

    ○ Download weekly, monthly, or quarterly data updates with the Atlas Installer.

    ○ Mapbox Atlas also fulfills the requirements of FISMA, GDPR, HIPAA, ISO, PCI DSS, SOC 2, and SOX.

    Rich, accurate data at scale:

    ● Mapbox maps use more than 130 multi-validated sources for a comprehensive, precise map all over the globe.

    ● Mapbox maps learn from every application they’re embedded in. Mapbox has over 600 million end-users on our SDKs; we collect 9 billion monthly miles of new data; and we update our map data multiple times a day.

    ● Every day, we receive 14 billion anonymous sensor readings which we use to deliver precise traffic data and instantly ship over 100,000 daily changes to maps on any connected device.

    Unrivaled customization and world-class cartographic design

    ● Mapbox provides building blocks for engineers and designers to take full control of the maps, navigation or automated driving experience.

    ● Create a completely custom, on-brand map experience in Mapbox Studio, including customization of both the look and feel of the map as well as the data and content that shows up in the map. Or use nearly two dozen map templates professionally designed by our in-house cartographers and map designers.

    Dynamic, real-time map rendering

    ● Mapbox’s industry-leading map renderer has been in development for over 10 years and uses the latest in OpenGL technologies for on-device rendering. Our maps are built with vector maps - an advanced approach to mapping where data is delivered to the device and precisely rendered in real time. This leads to highly performant yet lightweight maps with maximum flexibility, allowing you to dynamically style and optimize your map based on your custom data.

    Data visualizations and actionable intelligence

    ● Join your own data into Mapbox maps to build data visualizations aligned with your organizations’ objectives and intelligence needs. Data-driven styling and runtime styling let you create fully custom data visualizations that update with refreshed data on the fly and can help you surface actionable insights for your organization.

    ● Mapbox’s tools are interoperable with other business intelligence platforms your team may already be using, including Esri, Tableau, Microsoft Power BI, MicroStrategy, Alteryx, and Kepler.GL.

    Private and anonymous by design

    ● Mapbox is built on the principle of privacy first. Our live learning maps only use highly anonymized data. Mapbox does not collect any device identifiers and processes all imagery safely on device. Additionally, we break up trace data to ensure full anonymity of your operation and your end users’ privacy.

  • Mapbox Navigation

    Mapbox’s powerful navigation SDKs and APIs enable you to build a complete range of solutions, from in-app and in-vehicle navigation, to logistics route planning, dispatch and asset tracking. Our maps constantly incorporate newly detected routes, turn restrictions, and speed profiles.

    In-app and in-vehicle turn-by-turn navigation

    ● Build customized, turn-by-turn routing directly into your apps and vehicles. Mapbox’s Directions API uses real-time telemetry data from over 600 million end users to provide the most efficient route guidance and dynamic rerouting based on up-to-date traffic, road conditions, and route deviations. Offline navigation ensures that end-users get where they are going, even in low connectivity environments.

    ● Mapbox offers multimodal routing, with profiles for driving, walking and biking. Voice-based turn and lane guidance are available in over 39 languages.

    ● Mapbox’s Isochrone API allows you to show users what places are within a specified walking, biking, or driving radius from their current location, to help them choose where to go next.

    ● Mapbox’s Navigation SDK provides a drop-in navigation UI for iOS and Android apps that allows developers to get started with fewer than 10 lines of code. They can stick with the intuitive default settings, or customize them as needed.

    Route planning, dispatching and asset tracking

    ● Build the most efficient route plans for your drivers based on historical and real-time traffic and ETA data. Calculate the fastest travel times for a set of origins and destinations and optimize the itinerary of complex, multi-stop trips (i.e solve the “traveling salesman problem”.) Mapbox’s Matrix API easily integrates with existing optimization systems, or use our Optimization API, with ETAs and routing logic built in.

    ● Improve dispatching with real-time traffic served ultra-fast, at scale. This means you can cut costs, provide tighter delivery windows and achieve higher throughput from your assets. Monitor performance with a live asset tracking solution. Obtain real-time ETAs for all movements and overlay traffic and weather for smarter decision-making through unexpected changes. Add geofencing so you don’t miss critical changes. Visualize proprietary data like pick-up/drop-off points, while it remains securely on your infrastructure.

    Computer Vision-based driver safety, assistance, and AR navigation

    ● The Mapbox Vision SDK uses artificial intelligence and augmented reality to understand and illuminate the driver’s environment from both a street-level perspective and a bird’s-eye view.

    ● The SDK ingests a feed of video from a front-facing camera and then uses AI-powered semantic segmentation, object detection, and classification to convert pixels into data points.

    ● It identifies the objects and variables that define a driver’s journey, to build a real-time understanding of the road. Detect construction, recognize street signs and speed limits, and expose clearly distinguished lanes, curbs, sidewalks, buildings, and potential hazards.

    ● Build a smarter drive without draining your data plan or your wallet -- The Vision SDK’s neural networks are lightweight enough to run on today’s devices, yet powerful enough to make sense of every pixel the connected camera captures.

    ● These capabilities allow developers to deliver precise, lane-level navigation guidance, display safety warnings at the right time (e.g. speeding or tailgating), and build the sensors necessary for autonomous driving.

    ● Fleet managers can use Vision’s detection capabilities to monitor driving conditions, fleet maintenance needs, and store aggregated driver performance data with supporting images and video.
