FAQ

Do I need to provide attribution?

Yes, OpenStreetMap attribution is required as the map tiles are OSM-based. Moreover, Geoapify attribution is required for all Geoapify Free plans. The attribution is added automatically when you create a map by using style.json specification.

How fast are Geoapify tile servers?

Our map tiles are delivered through CDN, which is geographically distributed and provides high availability and performance. We also pre-calculate maps for the most popular locations. However, it may take some time if the map part you requested needs to be calculated first.

Can I create my own map style?

Yes, it’s possible. You can create your own map style that is base on one of our map styles with Maputnik. Load from URL the style.json, provided by Geoapify, and use the generated style in your project.

Which map libraries can I use to create maps?

You can use our maps with any map library that is able to work with OSM maps. However, as we use the Mapbox Style Specification, we recommend you look into the direction of Mapbox GL first.

Can we have Geoapify maps on a dedicated map tile server?

Yes, we provide dedicated and managed installations of Geoapify Location Platform.

How often do you update Geoapify maps?
