Custom maps for unique memories

Struggling to find the perfect gift for a loved one? atlas.co has you covered. By combining modern design with technology, you can create a custom route map to commemorate your own unique road and air trips. The process is simple: add any route, choose a style, submit your order, and showcase your map.

Using a unique set of Mapbox APIs, atlas.co brings memories to life. Custom map styles created within Mapbox Studio are displayed on the web using Mapbox GL JS. Search for a city or destination powered by Mapbox Search or display personal road trip routes from the Mapbox Directions API.

Mapbox’s comprehensive platform was a one-stop shop for all of the underlying tools we needed to power atlas.co’s map editor. Mapbox Studio empowers our designers to quickly customize maps with different features and colors, and Mapbox GL JS, along with the Directions API and Temporary Geocoding API, enabled our web development team to be extremely productive and get to market faster. Mapbox’s scale, existing customer base, and uptime also give our DevOps team confidence that the social media traffic drive by Kara and Nate’s YouTube channel and other social media sites, can handle the performance of our e-commerce store.
