In 2019, will bring the Mapbox tools for maps, search, and navigation to developers in Japan with local support and solutions. More than 600 million monthly active users generate over 14 billion anonymous sensor readings every day that power 100,000 daily changes to maps on connected devices. Each user sends back anonymized data to create a living map that updates in real time — allowing Mapbox to create the tools that you can use to power your application or business morning, afternoon, or night.


Anonymous sensor data helps find missing roads, determine road speeds and traffic, and classify biking and walking transit routes in cities. This data contributes to a better map of our world for your users.

Making a better map
We use telemetry from all Mapbox SDKs to improve our map, directions, travel times, and search. We collect anonymous data about how users interact with the map to help developers build better location based applications.

Location telemetry is critical to improving the map. We use the data to discover missing roads, determine turn restrictions, build speed profiles, and improve OpenStreetMap.

Automotive and Navigation

Tools to build on-demand, logistics, and ride-hailing navigation experiences. Plan, track, and optimize fleets for more efficient operations.

Mobile Applications

Powering the most popular apps in Japan, Asia, and the world. Mapbox maps drive user engagement and discovery.

High-Quality Local Data

Built with the best local data, and updated live by billions of sensors in real time. Localized to capture the complexity and beauty of Japan maps.
