Mapzen Mobile


Mobile is how the physical world connects to the internet. We are building a set of cross platform SDKs to simplify integration of Mapzen services into your mobile applications. These SDKs will simplify setup, installation, API key management, and generally make your life better.


Android SDK

The Mapzen Android SDK is a thin wrapper that packages up everything you need to use Mapzen services in your Android applications.

Current functionality:

Currently the Mapzen SDK features map rendering and location tracking. You can easily draw lines, drop pins, change map styles, and move the camera around though the Mapzen SDK or dig directly into Tangram for more advanced options.

The following Mapzen projects are currently supported:

  • L.O.S.T- Our drop-in replacement for Google Play Services Location APIs
  • Tangram- Our 2D and 3D map renderer using OpenGL ES

What’s coming up:

We will be incorporating navigation and search into the SDK through the following projects:

  • On the road- The Mapzen Turn-by-Turn wrapper and other routing utilities
  • Pelias- The Mapzen Search wrapper

Eraser Map

Eraser Map is a privacy-focused mapping application that tracks nothing about you and has no user accounts. The entirety of Eraser Map is built using Mapzen’s open-source software and open data – give the code a look or sign up to join the open beta program. We’d love to hear from you.

We are actively working on an SDK for iOS and you can follow along or contribute over on github.
