We are starting a massive refresh of Mapbox Satellite, partnering again with our friends at DigitalGlobe — the largest satellite company in the world. We are going to add 500,000 km2 of fresh imagery at very high resolution to key spots all around the world — this will let us cover thousands of fresh city updates.
All Mapbox Satellite data is fully traceable in OpenStreetMap, if you need tracing for commercial purposes outside of OpenStreetMap check out Mapbox Commercial Satellite. This means that all of this new imagery will be available for any tracing needs. So, where should we focus first? We just launched this new feedback tool so you can help us decide where new images are needed.
Follow us on twitter @Mapbox to get updates as the new imagery rolls out.
