Serve fast offline maps securely from your infrastructure. Mapbox Atlas runs everywhere.
Atlas lets you deploy and run Mapbox on-premises. It is a live location platform, deployable anywhere. Use vector basemaps generated by telemetry from 500M users all over the world, updated on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis. Style beautiful custom basemaps offline in Studio. Create heatmaps and complex data visualizations that run on web, mobile, or desktop, even AR. Add offline mapping capabilities to Microsoft Power BI, Tableau, and other business intelligence tools. Query data with offline global address level geocoding. Atlas is the same experience you expect from the Mapbox platform — offline, on your own infrastructure.

Frequently asked questions
Atlas lets you create an entire custom location platform from start to finish on your own private infrastructure. Style beautiful custom basemaps in Studio then use them with Mapbox GL JS to create beautiful heatmaps or complex data visualizations. Bring business intelligence visualizations on-premises with drop-in support for Power BI, Tableau, MicroStrategy, and Cognos. Create custom tilesets of high resolution satellite imagery with GDAL and use Tippecanoe to transform massive vector datasets into slim mbtiles files. Use Atlas to power your private mobile applications using our Mapbox Maps SDKs for Android and iOS. You can even use Atlas with our Unity SDK to power 3D visualizations using sensitive data.
Atlas Search has the same global coverage as Mapbox.com Search except for Italy, Japan, and Canada.
|Italy||Up to city level only|
|Japan||Up to city level only|
|Canada||Up to city level included, addresses available for an additional fee|
Atlas customers can purchase Atlas Search for an additional charge. Talk to our sales team to add Atlas Search to your Atlas license.
Use the Atlas Installer’s download command to
download Atlas Search updates. This command requires internet access. After downloading you can copy the data to your on-premises or offline Atlas installation.
After buying and downloading Atlas Search, rerun the
setupcommand from the Atlas Installer. This will update your Atlas license and configure Docker containers for Atlas Search.
Atlas Search uses an additional 70 GB of disk space and 8 GB of RAM. Here are the hardware specifications we recommend for different Atlas environments:
|Development||Development with Search||Production||Production with Search|
|2 CPU||2 CPU||4 CPU||4 CPU|
|8 GB RAM||8 GB RAM||16 GB RAM||32 GB RAM|
|60 GB SSD||65 GB SSD||600 GB SSD||700 GB SSD|
Atlas Mapbox Boundaries adds administrative, postal, and statistical boundaries to your maps, dashboards, and data visualizations. Atlas Boundaries consists of multiple data layers that come cartographically-matched, georeferenced, and processed as a Mapbox tileset ready for integration with your maps and data.
Atlas Boundaries facilitates data driven decision making by enabling you to join custom data with global and local boundary polygons. For example:
- A regional disaster response centers can use city and county boundaries to determine jurisdiction for emergency response.
- An Autonomous vehicle company can use administrative boundaries to track mobile asset compliance with varying local, state, and national laws.
- A utility or energy companies can visualize and assess localities affected by transmission infrastructure planning.
- A business intelligence platform can help their customers do any of the above.
Atlas Boundaries lets you visualize your data by country, region, sub-region, or post code to unlock insights within your own application. You can:
- Match point features — any longitude & latitude — to boundaries from our TileQuery API.
- Group statistics about points by boundaries, including easy drill down, with Data-Joins.
- Render an interactive map in your app with GL JS.
- Do any of the above with global coverage.
All of this can happen completely offline.
After buying you can use the Atlas installer to download Atlas Boundaries by running the download command.
Follow this getting started guide to begin building maps with Atlas Boundaries.
To add Atlas Boundaries to a map style in Atlas Studio, select the “Add Layer” button and view the “Sources” tab. Next add the tilesets as a layer within a map by selecting specific boundary tilesets from the list of Boundary tilesets. Additional information is covered in the Boundaries getting started guide.
Atlas Boundaries offers the same data as Boundaries on mapbox.com.
We recommend an additional 8 GB of storage on top of the standard Atlas system requirements. The global Atlas Boundaries data set is 7.01 GB.
To upgrade or update Atlas Boundaries data on an existing Atlas installation you would use the
download command in the Atlas installer. The command will download the latest version of Atlas Boundaries. After the download is completed you will have to run the
setup command to move the new tilesets into your Atlas instance tileset directory. A detailed guide to this process is available in our documentation.
No, at the moment Atlas does not support the Mapbox Terrain-RGB raster tileset.
Yes, you can use Mapbox GL JS with Atlas. To get started, replace
mapboxgl.accessToken with an Atlas access token and set
mapboxgl.config.API_URL to the URL of your Atlas server.
Yes, you can use Mapbox.js with Atlas. To get started, set
L.mapbox.accessToken to an Atlas access token and set
L.mapbox.config.HTTPS_URL to the URL of your Atlas server.
Only GL styles with
L.mapbox.styleLayer are supported. See Using Your Mapbox Studio styles everywhere. Mapbox Studio Classic styles and legacy styles are not supported.
- Versions 0.40 through 0.52 of Mapbox GL JS
- Versions 2.0 through 3.1 of Mapbox.js
- macOS (development use only)
- CentOS 7
- Ubuntu 14.04
- Ubuntu 16.04
We recommend the following minimum hardware configuration for production Atlas instances:
- 4 CPU cores
- 16 GB RAM
- 600 GB SSD
For testing and development of Atlas we recommend:
- 2 CPU cores
- 8 GB RAM
- 60 GB SSD
To upgrade your web applications you’ll need to switch from classic styles to GL styles. We recommend switching from Mapbox.js to Mapbox GL JS. Alternatively, you can use
L.mapbox.styleLayer in Mapbox.js to load GL styles. Contact Mapbox support (firstname.lastname@example.org) to receive a detailed upgrade and migration guide.
