Let's build maps to change the world

Mapbox started because of the power of location. Working in Afghanistan, Congo, Haiti, and the United States we saw how data and maps can shine a bright light on the hardest of problems. This spirit drives our mission to get the best location tools into the hands of changemakers around the world.

From tools to impact

Location tools help you make better decisions, achieve better results, and tell better stories. The Mapbox Community team exists to support individuals and organizations using these tools for positive impact.

Invest in changemakers

Location is a critical piece of many challenges, from disaster response to disease surveillance to environmental protection and beyond. Mapbox offers a range of supports to those who are building solutions.

Increase access and inclusion

Everyone working for the greater good should have access to the best tools available. Mapbox invests in open data and open source communities, donates and discounts our tools, and creates diverse learning resources and opportunities.

Engage through action

Positive change also requires direct action. Mapbox partners with leaders across our local and global communities to contribute our collective time, expertise, and resources to causes that align with our values.

Build with us

We’re here to support your positive impact efforts

Mentorship and skilled volunteers

Sometimes you need someone to help you build. We can provide technical feedback and facilitate collaboration with volunteers from across Mapbox.

Discounts and tailored accounts

Costs, budget cycles, or procurement shouldn’t block you. We can tailor discounts, capped cost accounts, and other license arrangements.

Special features and permissions

For high-volume or novel use cases, like offline mapping, we can connect you with advanced features, special permissions, or beta products.

Promotion and partnership

Let’s get the word out about your work so your impact can grow. We can collaborate on shared storytelling, events, and long-term partnerships.

If you are an educator or student, we have additional supports for you.
