Skybox is building direct Mapbox integration into their new BusBoy platform.
This means that any imagery ordered from Skybox can be turned into MBTiles — a super compressed tile transport package — and sent to your Mapbox.com account. From there you can annotate your imagery, overlay OpenStreetMap labels, and do cool stuff with our API — like showing timely imagery and publishing at scale. This is all possible thanks to our new read/write APIs that we are rolling out.
