Display a satellite map on a webpage

This example shows how to initialize a map on a webpage with Mapbox GL JS.

This example is like the Display a map on a webpage example, but it uses the style URL for the Mapbox Satellite style. Since globe projection and atmospheric styling are not included by default in the Satellite style, we set them in GL JS.
