What is Mapbox?

Mapbox is the location data platform for mobile and web applications. They provide building blocks to add location features like maps, search, and navigation into any experience you create. When integrated with Arcadia Enterprise, you get a powerful geospatial analytics platform that enables fast, dynamic rendering of maps on data sets with billions of records that represent millions of geospatial shapes.

Why Arcadia Data and Mapbox?

Arcadia Data and Mapbox help you create map visualizations that use large data sets to show extreme detail, and can refresh the maps quickly when new data is added.

Extreme Scale and Granularity

More geospatial data means more granular detail, but you can’t analyze at a detailed level if your analytics platform can’t scale. With Arcadia Data, you can analyze query results with billions of records, representing millions of geospatial shapes that delineate geographical boundaries. Analyze at a street or even a building level, instead of only at the county level.

Dynamic Map Rendering

Visualize live data via server-side calculations to quickly view different metrics on different segments, as well as to quickly refresh the map using recent updates on the underlying data. Unlike static mapping techniques, this allows users to immediately explore data with no IT intervention and no delay.

Real-Time Geospatial Analytics

View continually changing metrics on maps using data from data lake technologies that support fast-moving data such as Apache Kafka, Apache Solr, and Apache Kudu.

Arcadia Data also provides the flexibility to define your own geospatial boundaries. You can upload custom shape files into Mapbox Studio and dynamically bind data for greater range on the types of visualizations you can analyze. This lets you analyze at the level you need, unlike other systems that only support fixed map shapes.
