Pros
Community support from Mapbox is excellent. They care about good causes, non-profit work, and their official Community team makes a good faith effort to support them.
Mapbox it is very good if you want to produce maps with different tematics and different classifications. Some people uses it to produce architecture maps, which it is very good and oply oused.
I love the ability to call to the Open Street Map API and style the maps with the easy tools provided from Mapbox's Studio editor. Mapbox was easy to incorporate into my projects.
Cons
Getting through the documentation when you're stuck can be difficult.
The platafor of the software is quite difficult to be undestand. It takes me hours do understand how to classify things.
Missing most road numbers. Half the terrain doesn't show up.

Excellent non-profit support, ideal for quick map app development

Reviewed a year ago

Mapbox is my go-to source for building knowledge-driven map products usable by a broad and non-technical audience. The Community team ensures I have adequate support and resources to build them.

Pros

Community support from Mapbox is excellent. They care about good causes, non-profit work, and their official Community team makes a good faith effort to support them.Mapbox has what is probably the most functional and effective web basemap editor in Studio.Its documentation for app building is phenomenal, and its team makes strong efforts to keep it up to date, understandable, and usable for even non-developers. The API makes building single page applications, simple interactive dashboards and data visualizations a breeze. I wouldn't develop with any other tool.

Cons

Graceful degradation for smaller viewports needs more energy and development. End users demand some degree of functionality on their mobile devices - API provides options, but making maps work at even a base level can be very challenging.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review! It is great to have you part of the Mapbox community.

MapBox Delivers Cost-Effective Mapping Solutions, but Lacks in Support

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

MapBox is an exceptional mapping platform that has impressed me with its outstanding features and affordable pricing structure. Compared to its competitors, MapBox stands out with its highly competitive pricing, especially when using the SDKs. As a user of the Flutter SDK, I found the implementation process to be incredibly easy, which is a big advantage for developers.What I love most about MapBox is the user-friendly interface, which is perfect for product managers or anyone who needs to monitor the platform. The dashboard is simple, intuitive, and provides a wealth of data and insights that can be used to optimize mapping projects. With MapBox, I can easily monitor key metrics and make data-driven decisions to improve my project's performance.

Cons

The negative point of Mapbox is that if you have to use the Static Tiles API for example, the costs are quite prohibitive compared to the competitors, so this would be the only point of attention regarding the price.The big problem with Mapbox is the support, even if you are a big customer and you have a big monthly expense the support is very precarious and slow. It literally takes weeks or months...

Vendor response

Thank you for your review - we look forward to working with and learning from the growing the community of Flutter developers building with Mapbox.

Worst map program I've ever used !!!

Reviewed a year ago

We were forced to use it by CRO Software. They swapped from Google Maps (which works 1000 times better) to Mapbox

Pros

Nothing at all....its the worst map program I have ever used.

Cons

Its slow loading. Missing most road numbers. Half the terrain doesn't show up.

Vendor response

Thank you for raising your concerns. It sounds like your software vendor might be having some implementation challenges in their switch to Mapbox. We will reach out to them to see if we can address these concerns.

Definately dominating the market - the best option for any tool that requires map features

Reviewed a year ago

I was looking for a solution to display routes, and maps with customized "borders" and data.My first option was Google maps, since in my mind they were the 'biggest' but when I found out about mapbox and their capabilities I realized I found the best solution.The price is fair compared to the competitors and they offer a free-tier so you can start implementing features and only start paying once you grow your usage.

Pros

It has a great documentation, easy to set up, a lot of examples are available and the UI is really good.

Cons

In some features there where missing options, customizations and in one time I had to contact the support to ask to implement a small option, but they eventually did it.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review, Niv! Very glad to hear about your positive experience - it's an honor to support developers like you.

Mapbox is a super powerful mapping solution, but may be too much for the average user

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, Mapbox is an amazing software that can complete basically any job needed. That said, for the average user just looking to do basic things, it can be hard to use.

Pros

Mapbox is fully customizable to a level I have never experienced before. Mapbox allows for custom maps that can include as much or as little as needed. For example, components that can be added include administrative boundaries, buildings, land and water, natural features, place labels, point of interests labels, road network, transit, and much more. Additionally, color pallets can be added for further customization. This full customization is truly amazing.

Cons

Mapbox can be rather complex to use for someone just starting out. There is a rather steep learning curve. The software is so powerful and complex that it can make things hard.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review! So glad to hear you've been trying out the map customization options.
