Load data from an external GeoJSON file

This example adds GeoJSON data from an external file and uses it in a layer on the map.

Upon loading the map, it uses addSource to add the GeoJSONSource to the map, using a URL string as the value for data. Then it uses addLayer to create a circle layer that references the source.
