Mapbox Static Tiles API
The Mapbox Static Tiles API serves raster tiles generated from a GL style. This API is typically used to request a series of tiles to make a Mapbox.js, Leaflet, or other raster-based slippy map.
If you are using a Mapbox GL map style (using a style URL) via
L.mapbox.styleLayer, you are requesting map tiles from the Static Tiles API, which takes GL-based styles and renders raster tiles. The example below uses a GL-based style,
mapbox://styles/mapbox/streets-v11, with Mapbox.js.
L.map('map') .setView([38.8929, -77.0252], 14) .addLayer(L.mapbox.styleLayer('mapbox://styles/mapbox/streets-v11'));
