import Mapbox


class ThirdPartyVectorStyleExample_Swift: UIViewController {
var mapView: MGLMapView!

override func viewDidLoad() {

// Third party vector tile sources can be added.

// In this case we're using custom style JSON ( to add a third party tile source from Mapillary: <{z}/{x}/{y}.mvt>
let customStyleURL = Bundle.main.url(forResource: "third_party_vector_style", withExtension: "json")!

mapView = MGLMapView(frame: view.bounds, styleURL: customStyleURL)
mapView.setCenter(CLLocationCoordinate2DMake(60.16, 24.93), zoomLevel: 12, animated: false)
mapView.autoresizingMask = [.flexibleWidth, .flexibleHeight]
mapView.tintColor = .white

// Set the minimum zoom level to prevent the map from zooming out past zoom level 6.
mapView.minimumZoomLevel = 6
