style ID

A style ID is a map style's unique identifier.

When you create a style with Mapbox Studio, it generates a style URL that includes the style ID. A complete style URL, like mapbox://styles/mapbox/light-v10, is comprised of three components:

  • mapbox://styles: points to the Mapbox Styles API
  • /mapbox: your Mapbox username
  • /streets-v11: the unique style ID

You need to know the style ID for the specific map style you are working with when you use the Mapbox Styles API.
