Map tiles and basemap layers
Choose a map style that fits best your website or app design
We offer OpenStreetMap based map tiles in raster and vector formats for the best interactive maps experience. Our map tiles are compatible with all popular map rendering libraries and technologies, including Leaflet, Mapbox GL, and OpenLayers. Start now for Free and upgrade when you scale.
Develop a map with our code samples and templates
Check our documentation and code samples to create a custom interactive map within minutes
On our documentation page, we provide template and JSFiddle code samples that help you to get started. Moreover, you can use our interactive Maps Playground to check available styles and options. It also provides ready to use code snippets for each map style.
Map project templates
We’ve created map project templates for your convenience. Just check or clone a GitHub repository and follow the instructions to create Mapbox GL, Leaflet, or Open Layers-based maps.
Still not sure how to start, face any problems or have questions? Please let us know, we are here to help.
Our maps are served by powerful dedicated servers with the fast NVMe storage and delivered through a global caching CDN. Over 200 CDN points of presence all over the world guarantee efficient and reliable map loading. We also pre-generate map tiles for all popular locations. However, it is still possible to see a slight map loading delay when a map area that is accessed for the very first time.
Yes, OpenStreetMap attribution is required as the map tiles are based on OSM data. Moreover, Geoapify attribution is required for all Free plans. The attribution is added automatically when you create a map by using style.json specification.
Yes, it’s possible. Map styles should follow the Mapbox GL style specification. You can create your own map style from scratch or derive it from one of the existing styles. We recommend using a visual style editor like Maputnik – open and load style.json URL make your modifications, export generated style.json and and use it in your project.
Our Map Tiles API follows the most widely supported ZXY tile format with 256×256 sized tiles. It works well with almost any software, library, SDK, or technology that supports tiled map sources. Older SDKs and GIS software like QGIS generally support only raster maps. For new applications, we recommend using Mapbox GL for Web and GL Native for Mobile development.
Yes, this is possible. Geoapify Maps and Geoapify Location Platform in general can be configured and installed on-premise. Please contact us for details.
Maps and underlying datasets are generally updated once per month. Contact us, if you need more frequent updates.
Yes, you are free to print our maps as long as you respect the attribution requirements. We recommend using vector map tiles for generating smooth high-DPI images. Please also take a look at our Static Maps API as an easy way to generate print-ready static map images.
