Soft, contrasting color scheme
Mapbox Outdoors has a soft, contrasting color scheme that allows the viewer to easily recognize terrain features and elevation while providing depth, space and more gentle hues to overlay custom location data.
Trails, paths and more
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, tracks and piste, as well as rocks and mountain peaks 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, 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.
Relevant points of interest
Mapbox Outdoors contains an array of POI data relevant to active use cases: you can find campsites, public restrooms, and even water fountains in these specialized layers. POI icons have background shapes and pronounced colors, making them particularly viewable on mobile. In Mapbox Studio, you can customize these icons with different shapes, sizes, and colors based on classification.
Globe View at low zoom levels
Mapbox Outdoors defaults to Globe View at low zoom levels, including fog and atmospheric properties, offering you an alternative to the flat and skewed Mercator Projection when aiming to realistically display visual information that is continental in scale.
