Last month we announced MapBox Satellite, a global high-resolution aerial imagery layer for MapBox Streets, our street-level map of the world. Through MapBox.com you can customize satellite maps to change their color hue and saturation, as well as overlay streets, labels, and boundaries on them. This feature allows you to design an imagery layer that fits with the look and feel of your website or application.

Here’s a short video demoing MapBox Satellite’s tinting options.

Our satellite imagery is going to have radically extended coverage in the next few months as we rollout new imagery as part of our work with DigitalGlobe.

To get started with MapBox Satellite, you’ll need a Basic level MapBox account or higher. Then just login to start experimenting with tinting and customization. If you have any questions or run into issues, let us know in support.mapbox.com.
