We have exciting news to share with our community of mapmakers, developers, and partners! Mappedin is now a Silver Sponsor of MapLibre, contributing $10,000 USD to support the mission of this vital open-source mapping organization. The sponsorship exemplifies our commitment to the open-source community and our belief that leveraging open standards can deliver unparalleled mapping experiences.

What is MapLibre?

MapLibre is an open-source mapping library that powers dynamic, interactive maps on web and mobile platforms. Born from a community-led initiative, MapLibre is an example of the power of collaboration and open access to technology. It allows developers to integrate high-quality maps into their applications, enhancing the overall user experience.

Why Open Source Matters to Mappedin

At Mappedin, we believe in the power of open-source technology to democratize tools and access to information. Open-source projects like MapLibre not only spur innovation but also ensure that high-quality tech solutions are available to everyone, not just those with sophisticated skill sets and extensive resources. This ethos aligns with our Maps for Good initiative, where our goal is to further the use of maps and mapping technology for schools, firefighting, and other public sector and first response-focused solutions.

Our Sponsorship and Collaboration with MapLibre

As a part of our Silver tier sponsorship, Mappedin will be an active participant in the MapLibre monthly meetings. We will be engaging in a meaningful partnership that allows us to help shape and provide feedback on the product’s roadmap and collaborate closely with the open-source community.

Our sponsorship will help showcase our commitment to enabling richer indoor experiences for our partners and customers through cutting-edge technology and gain more visibility within the web map developer community.

How Mappedin Works with MapLibre

Mappedin leverages MapLibre to render outdoor maps, providing essential context to our indoor mapping solutions. This integration enriches the user experience in several key ways:

  • Visitors navigating new spaces receive a seamless indoor and outdoor mapping experience.

  • Shoppers can easily find their way in and around shopping malls.

  • First responders have access to valuable pre-planning tools, including detailed maps of surrounding streets and building entrances.

Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to work closely with MapLibre and contribute to the evolution of open-source mapping technology.
