2012 in the rear-view and a peek into 2013

We had a big year at MapQuest and we wanted to thank you for being a part of it!
Here’s just a quick run down of the 2012 highlights:

MapQuest Discover

In the fall we debuted MapQuest Discover, a photo-rich travel board where you can plan your next adventure, share photos of places and cities you’ve been, get inspired by great trip guides from our MapQuest travel writers, or even learn about new places to visit from other people like you. More

MapQuest Local

MapQuest Vibe expanded into MapQuest Local. Now you can get insider info like travel guides, reviews & ratings, best restaurants, your friend’s activity, and more for hundreds of cities and all 50 states. More

Mobile Apps

We’ve been working hard on our free iPhone and Android apps, so that cheap gas and voice-guided directions that beat traffic are only a tap away. More



MapQuest.com

The year saw changes to the site that allow you to hide the steps out of your neighborhood, find the cheapest gas and easily view the best places in any neighborhood.More

MapQuest API

For the developers out there, we released our iOS and Android Map APIs, which brings flexible routing, accurate geocoding, and beautiful maps to your own mobile apps. We also refreshed the styling on our Open Map Tiles, updated our Open JavaScript API, and released our Open Geocoding API. More

MapQuest Culture

From community gardens to clothing drives, picnics to holiday parties, we made it a point to be active in the community again this year. And with lots of exciting new projects in the pipeline, we’re continually looking for talented folks to join us.



Big Plans for 2013

In 2013, you’ll see us continue to improve what you’ve come to love about MapQuest, including exciting new products that move us further along in our vision for the future: to inspire your travel time, family time, free time, anytime; wherever the map meets your life.

Every month, 36+ MILLION* of you shared the journey with us.
Looking forward to another great year with you!

Onward!
