Terms of use for maps

For general terms about the usage of a web page, see terms of use for website.

Free service

We love the open-source and open-data community. That is the reason why we work on this project in the first place, and why we are giving access to vector tiles completely for free.

The Free plan is legally usable for:

Any other use (esp. integration with applications deployed in production, use of the map data in commercial products, mobile apps, official institutional web portals, websites with advertisement, etc.) requires purchase of a higher plan.

It is great to see our map tiles and our open-source software actively used!

Purchased services

We want to help your business grow with our maps. If you purchase one of our commercial plans you get right to use our data in your products.

There are no restrictions on the type of usage. Feel free to use your paid plan in your free or commercial apps, for asset tracking, in embedded devices, navigation software, to create printed products, video recordings, etc.

It is your business. We ask only for visible attribution (see below).

No direct redistribution

Access to the service shall not be made available to third-parties as they are - neither for sale or for free. If you want to resell access, please contact us.

You can use only one MapTiler accont as it will be used for YOUR commercial/non-commercial apps (B2C).

Some of our customers develop apps for their customers and THEY use the service for THEIR commercial purposes (B2B) - it this case they have to purchase a separate MapTiler Cloud for each customer.

Bulk download and redistribution of map tiles are not allowed. Please contact us if you need this use case.

No proxy or server-side caching. Each individual end-user must do direct reqests to our infrastructure and our global CDN. Results of requests can be stored in a personal temporary cache (browser cache, mobile app cache, etc.) for use by a single end user.

To prevent overloading of the server infrastructure, there is rate limiting set in place. It is never reached by standard usage.

Attribution requirement

The MapTiler Cloud has a strict requirement of attribution on the produced maps. By using MapTiler Cloud you agree to provide such attribution on the maps you display.

Exceptions to MapTiler attribution requirement can be granted commercially in a written form by Klokan Technologies GmbH ([email protected]).

For a browsable electronic map based on MapTiler Cloud and OpenStreetMap data, the credit should appear in the corner of the map. For example:

© MapTiler © OpenStreetMap contributors

For printed maps, images or video recording a similar attribution should be made in a clearly visible textual description near the map, in the same fashion as if you cite a photograph.

Other datasets (such as Satellite or DEM derived data) may require attribution as well.

Geocoding service

Geocoding is now unguaranteed. Service is still in development now deployed as a beta version for testing purposes. Limit of requests is same as map requests limit.

No warranties

The map data are provided “as is” without warranties or conditions of any kind, whether oral or written, express or implied. By using the data you confirm you have verified the quality of the data in the public preview and you accept it is of sufficient quality for your use case.

Limitation of Liability

Except to the extent prohibited by law, in no event shall the MapTiler team be liable for direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential or other damages (including lost profit or lost data) arising out of the use, inability to use, or the results of the use of our data or software, whether based in warranty, contract, tort or other legal theory, and whether or not advised of the possibility of such damages.
