About Strava Maps

About our maps: 

The Strava website and selected map thumbnails in the Strava iOS and Android apps use data from ©OpenStreetMap and are licensed under the ODbL. Strava is committed to actively contributing to OpenStreetMap.

The Strava website uses maps provided by Mapbox, with the data for roads, places, parks, and trails sourced from OpenStreetMap. Strava provides three maps for viewing your activities on the Strava website: Terrain, Standard and Satellite. Terrain data is based on sources from InterMap and over a dozen of country-specific sources. Satellite imagery is sourced from DigitalGlobe, NASA and Mapbox. 

Map Feedback:

This article describes the maps on Strava and explains how to provide valuable feedback to improve the maps for the entire community. We continuously update our maps based on your activities and feedback. Working behind the scenes, your aggregate activity data is used to verify map accuracy and power the Strava Routes basemap. If you discover a problem, you can send us specific information to help us improve the maps on Strava.


Our maps support four languages: English, French, German and Spanish. If you have Strava set to one of the four languages, you will see map labels in that language. For any other language that is not supported at this time, you will see the default map which displays regional language. To change your preferences, use the menu at the bottom of any Strava page.
