Maps are critical in humanitarian emergencies. They reveal buildings hardest hit in an earthquake, identify safe routes for relief supplies, and streamline damage assessments.

To support these life-saving missions, Mapbox is now free for humanitarian response.

As the international community gathers for the World Humanitarian Summit, we’re making it easier to share post-event satellite and drone imagery, build maps of critical infrastructure and displaced populations, publish web and mobile maps for low-bandwidth environments, and take maps entirely offline. Meeting humanitarian needs is more challenging than ever; making maps and sharing geospatial data shouldn’t be.
