dataset

A dataset is an editable collection of GeoJSON features. Datasets can be uploaded to Mapbox using Mapbox Studio or the Mapbox Datasets API, and can be edited in the Mapbox Studio dataset editor. Unlike tilesets, datasets can be edited on a feature-by-feature basis. Datasets are not intended to be used directly in a Mapbox Studio style, but they can be exported as a tileset or you can request a list of features to be used any way you would use GeoJSON. Any dataset exported to a tileset can be added as a layer in the Mapbox Studio style editor.
