“The most versatile geographic and cartographic management tool in the market.”

ProsWhat I like most about this tool is that it is in the cloud. You do not have to go through difficult installation processes like with similar products. It is easy to work, even if you are not from the GIS area or have another career not related to geography. I like the possibility of interaction that has the data on a map. It is perfect for presentations to multidisciplinary groups of people who do not know how to analyze a map, since the final products possess qualities that traditional digital maps do not possess. Mapbox has known how to evolve in the field of GIS, combining the ease and practicality of similar services such as google maps, with the precision and efficiency in editing and processing proprietary software data such as Argis. The best part is that it is open source.
ConsIt is a tool for online use, so when there are faults in the internet connection, obviously the quality of the mapbox service is limited. In addition, the tool has some free geoprocessing and upload functions to the cloud, but those of us working with GIS know that a map completed with its associated data base can weigh hundreds of MB, and that cloud storage space It is definitely not free and nothing affordable.

“One API for all map solutions!”

OverallOverall the tool is must have for an aviation industry. Developers must have this skill to plot and locate geographic data on interactive map.
ProsMapbox provides intuitive studio GUI for developers. Easy to design Maps for developers. Either use API for designing or use web GUI, both provide endless features. High customization, Programming Language Support, GIS application strong backend support, Large community support makes is most usable product.
ConsData Visualization and Geo location plotting requires more understanding of the code samples. No official support for major languages than JavaScript.

“Very in-depth custom map creator with loads of options for developers and non-developers alike”

OverallI've been able to make very detailed area maps of remote areas with historical styling and information
ProsI'm definitely a more simplistic user of this platform; I mainly use it to create period maps and detail locations of interest. I know there is a much more in-depth side to it for power users. It essentially lets you create highly detailed and stylized maps, and even interactive maps. I can't speak for the software development side since I'm not a developer, but I know that it allows for you to create custom maps for your project using your own data, styles, and customer interactions, that you can then deploy in various settings.
ConsI guess since it is aimed at developers, it can definitely be confusing to try and use if you are not one.

“Beautifully designed maps with lots of features”

ProsMapBox is amazing for developing interactive map software solutions. The ability to view and toggle 3D layers, their additional tools, and their visualization features makes MapBox one of the best map solutions out there
ConsThe price point for private applications is a little bit confusing.

“MapBox is one of the best webmapping options out there - and getting better!”

ProsI like how flexible it is - I can almost always get what I'm imaging to happen, without a huge amount of hassle, or without running into walls. It's easy to get up and running, and has a ton of API options.
ConsThe learning curve is pretty steep, and there aren't a ton of demo projects that you can take and run with. It's also not the fastest rendering in the world.

“SuperB maps”

ProsYou can create beautiful maps in a minute, upload your data design it and add to map. Mapbox.js also awesome.
ConsFor starter companies who has no really income at the beginning but their business would like to use mapbox for commercial purposes, I think its a bit expensive.

“Mapbox is great for developing applications with custom detailed maps”

OverallDeveloping apps with custom maps and features is relatively simple with Mapbox.
ProsMapbox gives you everything you need to create beautiful custom maps and applications.
ConsI have yet to find anything to really complain about in using Mapbox. The documentation is thorough but I could see newer developers having issues with some things.

“Appropriate application to stay located, in the place where you are.”

ProsThe addresses are always updated, allowing you to enjoy more of the places, without having to get lost.
ConsIt is very simple, it does not have anything out of the ordinary, although it works completely and it is very productive for those who use it, in the matter of innovation, it is not very noticeable. The rest works perfectly.

“Map box took advantage of the option to offer open source ”

ProsI believe this is one of the easier mapping software products on the market today. I have tested a handful.
ConsSometimes it was a bit clunky in terms of navigation and finding specific items. There is a bit of a learning curve.
