Trails and paths

To meet the needs of the bikers, hikers, runners, and skiers that rely on Mapbox Outdoors, our cartographers mined OpenStreetMap for its extensive trail, path, and piste information, and developed styling that clearly articulates each type for maximum legibility.

Curated terrain data

Global elevation and landcover data lie at the heart of Mapbox Outdoors. We processed the best elevation and land cover sources from around the world: 24 datasets from 13 organizations, including the U.S. Geological Survey, Norwegian Mapping Authority, and Canadian GeoBase data portal. We combined them into a set of hillshade, contour line, and land cover layers that provide the necessary context for Mapbox Outdoor's path and trail information.
