MacVoices #15126: Justin Miller of Mapbox On Their Mapping Tools for iOS and Web Developers

We all use maps, but how much thought do you give them? Justin Miller and the team at Mapbox  give them a whole lot of thought. Mapbox supplies maps and map data to application developers to use in apps like Pinterest, Foursquare and more. Justin gives us a look at the world of iOS maps, the kinds of information they deliver to us, and the kinds of information that developers can obtain from them.
