Mapbox.cn is the same mapping platform powering hundreds of millions of users for companies like Weather.com and Pinterest, but running in data centers through our local partners in China.
Our China infrastructure is specifically designed to speed up Chinese mobile maps. The result is our maps are more than 10 times faster than other map providers, whether you are roaming on your international data plan or on wifi.
Our China maps run in country, Mapbox.cn also powers global Chinese maps for the rest of the world.
Global data centers
With Mapbox global data centers, if a traveler on a wifi hotspot at the airport is looking for a hotel, they will be served by our closest global infrastructure.
China data centers
Network requests while roaming internationally go directly to the Mapbox China's local partner's data centers rather than hopping in and out of country.
Fast maps, everywhere
We focus on speed, because we know that every millisecond counts for digital transactions.
This year, 100 million Chinese will travel abroad and every time they open an app while roaming – from hailing a car to booking a hotel room – their requests will be routed back through China. This routing adds hundreds of milliseconds of latency as requests hop multiple times through international data centers. Slow maps ruin the entire mobile experience.
Mapbox.cn delivers fast maps in your app, everywhere in the world. Maps and location that now feel like you are home in China, regardless of where you are traveling outside of China.
