Maproom uses several sources for map data. These sources have near global coverage and the quality and density might differ per area. If you want to know if an area you're interested in is covered you can check out the following places. Keep in mind that Maproom does not ship with this data. It just connects you to the map data of your choice. Also remember that each of these data sources come with their own restrictions and attributions. Maproom does not grant you any license or permission to use this data.


OSM data is created by the community and differs greatly in coverage and quality. Look on to see if it fits your needs. In Maproom you can use osm data to get building outlines or road shapes for instance.

This is a sample of a model built with OSM data only. The building heights are either derived from the data or imaginary.

Satellite images

Maproom uses several sources. You can check some of them individually

This is an example of a Bing satellite image of Berlin

Terrain heights

Currently Maproom uses Mapbox and Mapzen terrain data. Both have global coverage and use different datasets at different zoomlevels. Mapzen terrain data even provides bathymetric terrain data (underwater). Here's some info about the datasrouces Mapzen uses:

Haiti with terrain heights and even bathymetric heights (the bottom of the ocean). Data by Mapbox and openstreetmap.


You can use your own shapefiles. But if you need global shapes of things like country borders, rivers, urban areas and so on I highly recommend Natural Earth data:
