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

Pros

What 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.

Cons

It 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.

Beautiful software

We've been using Mapbox for about 4 years and 2 versions. we'll continue to use them moving forward.

Pros

Mapbox makes it easy to create custom-colored maps, but that's not where its power lies. Mapbox's API allows us to implement custom maps and pins integrating our data simply. The vector-based map is fast and integration is simple with their documentation

Cons

No real cons to speak of. You really need to be a programmer to work with mapbox though, lay people will find it challenging to implement.

Map box took advantage of the option to offer open source

Pros

I believe this is one of the easier mapping software products on the market today. I have tested a handful.

Cons

Sometimes it was a bit clunky in terms of navigation and finding specific items. There is a bit of a learning curve.

One API for all map solutions!

Overall the tool is must have for an aviation industry. Developers must have this skill to plot and locate geographic data on interactive map.

Pros

Mapbox 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.

Cons

Data 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

I've been able to make very detailed area maps of remote areas with historical styling and information

Pros

I'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.

Cons

I guess since it is aimed at developers, it can definitely be confusing to try and use if you are not one.
