1. Save Money: Without Cutting Corners

When Berlin–based EventSofa switched from Google Maps to Stadia Maps , they immediately saved 95+% of their map costs.

In under 30 minutes we migrated our code to Stadia Maps without prior knowledge of the Stadia Maps API, including deployment. Stadia Maps have excellent pricing, good looking tiles, support the Mapbox API and, as we learned, have excellent support.

We are confident we can deliver superior service that fits well within your budget—freeing up financial resources for investment elsewhere in your company.

2. Declare Independence: Stay Nimble & Stay Private

Stadia Maps is a 100% independent geo-location data provider, making us one of the few such companies around. All of our map data comes from open, freely available data-sets, and our APIs use open-source standards allowing for an easy migration in the future should the need arise.

Stadia Maps also makes promises our competitors won't make:

  • We put your privacy and your users' privacy first.
  • We don't use cookies, even on this marketing web site.
  • We don't store user logs longer than 30 days.
  • We don't share any user data with anyone and we never will.

Compare this to other mapping providers, and you will find that they collect your users' data to help deliver more targeted ads and services on the web and in mobile apps, whether you like it or not.
