Mapzen shutting down

Jan Marsch • 2018-01-03 • Update 2019-03-24

It seems unreal but Mapzen is closing business.

Is it just 4 years? Regarding tools, presence and influence on OSM Community.
I'm especially glad to have met and discussed with Brett, Peter R. and Patrizio.

Also Mapzen's services will halt by January 31st, which is very short notice to many clients. Their remain available as open source so you can continue using them or set up your own services.

Since January 2019 Mapzen is a Linux foundation project.

Alternatives

Data extracts: Geofabrik
Vector Tiles: Mapbox
