Supplement geocoding search results from another data source

Use the mapbox-gl-geocoder control to search for places using Mapbox Geocoding API, supplementing results from a local data source or function, in this case to match geographic coordinates provided as input.

Mapbox GL unsupported
Mapbox GL requires WebGL support. Please check that you are using a supported browser and that WebGL is enabled.
