Glossary

attribution

Attribution is the combination of two visual elements that are placed on all Mapbox maps, stating that a map was created with Mapbox tools and data.

Mapbox requires all maps to include the Mapbox wordmark and text attribution. The Mapbox wordmark is a small image containing the stylized word "Mapbox" and the Mapbox logo. The text attribution contains at least three links: © Mapbox, © OpenStreetMap and Improve this map. This attribution is strictly required when using the Mapbox Streets tileset due to OpenStreetMap's data source ODbL license. Some other Mapbox-provided tilesets require additional attribution which is stored in the TileJSON of the tileset.

For more information about how and when attribution is required, see our attribution guide.
