Mapbox Atlas

Current version: v2.6.0

  • On-premises vector tile maps
  • Offline Mapbox Studio
  • Full suite of Mapbox APIs behind your firewall

Mapbox Atlas allows you to run Mapbox global maps on your own infrastructure, including behind a firewall or completely offline. Atlas includes an offline instance of the Mapbox Studio style editor, vector tiles, and has built-in support for custom tilesets. This means that you can run the Mapbox Maps APIs and Studio on a specific server or virtual private cloud that you have complete control over, then deploy to your web, mobile, or AR app.

Mapbox Atlas supports the latest Mapbox vector map technology, including Mapbox GL JS, so maps render quickly and are highly customizable.
