Strava lets athletes track activities, connect with others, discover new routes, and push themselves further. Strava wanted a map that reflected an athlete’s journey and what they could conquer. Using Mapbox Maps SDKs and the Static Images API, they’ve created a custom dynamic and static map style that emphasizes trail names, elevation contours, and smooth GPS traces.
All Trails is building the largest collection of hand-curated trail guides to let travelers explore the outdoors with confidence. When they needed an all in one solution for searching routes on a custom terrain style that was available offline, driving directions to the trailhead, and a trace of the hike, they turned to Mapbox.
Recreation.gov uses Mapbox to provide an all in one platform for discovering, planning, and booking the perfect outdoor trip. For people looking to plan longer vacations, their “Trip Planner” uses our maps and Directions API to plan out multi-stop trips, get distances between locations, and find interesting stops along the way.
Runkeeper helps millions of athletes explore new routes by planning and tracking runs with GPS data. Their custom map style emphasizes running paths and altitude changes, and the web interface makes it simple to track mileage with custom map markers.
We are thrilled to share this significant upgrade with our members, with more terrain detail and improved accuracy and aesthetics for how GPS tracks appear. Mapbox is a mapping leader, and we’re excited about the athlete-optimized map that our two teams created for the global Strava community.
