We’re excited to announce that Sean Gillies, author
of Shapely and collaborator on
the GeoJSON specification, is joining MapBox!
Sean is going to bring his algorithmic wisdom to all parts of the
MapBox stack, and help build our next-generation open source tools.
We’ve long been fans and users of his projects - we use Shapely
for basic analysis tasks,
and GeoJSON is a pivotal standard that makes our markers API
possible. It’s going to be an awesome future
combining Sean’s analytical background with MapBox scale.
