Mapbox Cities, launched as part of the White House Smart Cities Initiative in September 26, 2016, provides open data analysis and Vision Zero tools to partner cities to enable development of advanced mobility policies. Mapbox works with each participating city to gather data on its particular challenges and then collaborates to create insightful and actionable data-driven maps incorporating open data and real-time traffic data from Mapbox.

Ryan Baumann walks you through one Mapbox Cities partner collaboration, covering the problem, analysis, and results of using Mapbox tools to solve urban challenges.
