Looking at network throughput for it looks like something is using an infamous "nchapman.hejm93ej" key. We should probably make sure this gets changed to something under Mozilla's control in case we want to fire @nchapman.

@elan or @vishy, do we have an API key that we can use? Or do you know who can get us an account?
I believe @nchapman was saying that Mozilla Location Services was using mapbox and may already have a key. Not sure if we can use the same key or if we need something else.
:hannosch, do you have any pointers, per chance?

Justin may be able to help with this. I think he's managing our mapbox account. At least it's one we use for and the location service (both client and server side maps).

Someone from the FMD teams needs to come up with an estimate of how much traffic it will generate. mapbox counts and prices things by "map views", where they define one map view as rendering 15 map tiles.

Depending on the estimated traffic, we either need a new contract with mapbox, extend the existing one or can just issue a new key as part of the existing contract.

:hannosch is exactly right about the next step. Please estimate how much traffic this use will require per month over the next year under optimistic conditions.

Unless it vastly exceeds our contracted amount, I or someone from the web productions team can help get a new project set up on our Mapbox account.

If you decide to go with your own Mapbox account, the legal review earlier conducted on our Mapbox agreement is in bug 894061, and may expedite any similar review you undertake.

:vishy, need help with estimates.
