There continues to be a future for the projects incubated at Mapzen and those tools and data continue to be used and updated in 2020 and beyond after our January 2019 transition to the Linux Foundation.
Now back to 2018… Unfortunately, we have some sad news. Mapzen will cease operations at the end of January 2018. Our hosted APIs and all related support and services will turn off on February 1, 2018. You will not be charged for API usage in December/January. We know this is an inconvenience and have provided a migration guide to similar services for our developer community. Our goal is to help as much as possible to ensure continuity in the services that you have built with us.
Fortunately, the core products of Mapzen are built entirely on open software and data. As a result, there are options to run Mapzen services yourself or to switch to other service providers.
Thanks for being with us over the past four years. We’re grateful that the open work we’ve done can continue outside of Mapzen and while we know this is a sad day, we’re optimistic about what’s next.
