Simple procurement accelerates adoption of Mapbox live mapping in Candian government

Washington, DC – WASHINGTON DC – December 2019  Mapbox, the AI-driven live mapping platform, has been awarded a Software Licensing Supply Arrangement (SLSA) via Public Works and Government Services Canada. This award streamlines and simplifies the procurement, access, and implementation of Mapbox’s world class location data and services for all levels of the Government of Canada.

Since its inception, Mapbox has helped public sector organizations make better sense of their data through visualization and analysis to improve mission-critical outcomes, support coordinated response, and maximize efficiencies and transparency across diverse groups with unique requirements.  In particular, Mapbox specializes in helping the public sector to:

  • Support defense & intelligence missions by providing an interoperable system for planning and execution
  • Analyze, visualize and disseminate location information using modern and scalable architecture for cloud and on-premise environments
  • Increase transparency for the public to help optimize spending, maximize effectiveness, and make better decisions.
  • Gain insights into communities and the needs of citizens by improving communication and safety.

“Mapbox was created to provide mission critical location and data intelligence in the field,” said Mapbox National Security lead John Dombzalski. “From mapping election results in Afghanistan, to delivering for our partners in state and national capitals around the world, our tools have been hardened to meet the needs of global government and defense partners.”

Anthony Calamito, Director of Government Programs at Mapbox said, “As an approved SLSA vendor we look forward to increasing our support to the Government of Canada as they look to modernize technology platforms, combat ever-changing threats, and provide modern location services to all Canadians.”

Adopting Mapbox will assist the Government of Canada in the execution of each guiding principle outlined under their Strategic Plan for Information Management and Information Technology: client and service-centered design, open, enterprise-first, secure, cloud-first, and enabling a modern workplace.

Mapbox offerings are available to the Canadian public sector through SLSA Contract #EN578-100808/360/EE. For more information, contact the Mapbox public sector team at [email protected]
