The Mapbox-upload SDK is a NodeJS library for interfacing with the Mapbox upload API. The Mapbox Uploads API transforms geographic data into tilesets that can be used with maps and geographic applications. It normalizes projections and generates tiles at multiple zoom levels to make data viewable on the web. Mapbox is an open source mapping platform for developers.
There's a new way to get thousands of local points of interest into your web maps: the CloudMade Data Market Place. There's a fee for using the data, but otherwise it's as easy as the standard CloudMade API (our CloudMade API profile). For a few hundred dollars per year, you can add any restaurant in the U.S., hospitals in the UK to your map, or one of about 80 datasets.
This is the first API profile in what we are calling the "Growth Series." Mapbox provides an API that allows developers to create maps with rich data visualizations by using multiple data layers. This feature along with others has fueled an 11x growth in calls made to its API.
