style

A style is a JSON document that defines the visual appearance of a map. Styles are created with the Mapbox Studio style editor or written independently and uploaded to your account. They adhere to the Mapbox Style Specification and include information about data sources, style layers, sprites, glyphs, and metadata. Styles are rendered by Mapbox GL JS, the Mapbox Maps SDK for Android, the Mapbox Maps SDK for iOS, or the Mapbox Static Images API.

For more information about styles, explore the Mapbox Studio manual.
