Mapbox Vector Tiles API

The Mapbox Vector Tiles API serves vector tiles. Each API request results in a single tile from a vector tileset. Vector Tiles API requests are typically made as a series of requests used to render a map using a Mapbox GL map library.

Vector Tiles API requests and map loads

Web maps using any version of Mapbox GL JS before v1.0.0 are billed by Vector Tiles API requests and Raster Tiles API requests rather than map loads. To be billed by map loads instead of tile requests, you must update to Mapbox GL JS v1.0.0 or higher.
