Mapbox is really helping people go places. The D.C.-based mapping company just announced its one millionth developer on its site. The company commemorated the move with a new hashtag #1millionexploring.

The company closed on a $164 million Series C investment round last October, making it the third largest deal in the fourth quarter of the year in the DMV. The company recently relocated to a new office at 15th and H Sts. NW.

According to Mapbox founder Eric Gundersen: “Every time someone uses a map, the map gets smarter. Almost 10% of our registered developers are actively hitting our map APIs each month, meaning we’re in apps touching more than 300 million people, all around the world. Over 60 percent of our developers come from outside the US, from over 217 countries. The more people in more places touching our maps, the more anonymous data streams back into the map, making a live updating map of the world for everyone.”
