Looking for an alternative to Mapbox geocoding?

Tired of over-spending for geocoding?

Using open data via OpenCage can significantly reduce your costs

pros and cons


Geocoding is one of many, many different geospatial services Mapbox provides.

We focus purely on geocoding.

Our geocoding API is simpler, focused, much more affordable, and we have SDKs for 30+ languages to make the transition straight-forward.

See our Geocoding Buyer's Guide for a full list of all the factors to consider.

The benefits of Open Data

  • Use data wherever you like
  • Store it as long as you need
  • Benefit from continual fixes of the crowd

Mapbox allows you to store geocoding data only if you pay for their much more expensive "permanent" geocoding.
