In this modern era, everyone needs a “map” for navigation. When you want to visit a new place, you will need an interactive street map. When you want to reach that specific booth, you will need that venue’s map. When you order food, you will also need a map to track your shippers.
Steerpath has a long history of building indoor positioning and wayfinding experiences for cross-platform use. As part of this solution, the map engine plays a pivotal role, and rather than building their own, Steerpath opted to leverage the Mapbox map engine as a foundation. This high-quality and flexible map engine has now for years been a key piece in Steerpath’s SDK.
What is Mapbox anyway?
Mapbox is the location data platform for mobile and web applications. With similar functionalities as Google Maps, Mapbox alleviates the stress of cost increase while allowing more freedom for customization. Mapbox’s service is used by GitHub, Pinterest, Foursquare, and other popular companies. In addition, the company values open-source roots, thus constantly encouraging talented developers to actively analyze and improve the codebase.
