Display a map on a webpage

This example uses mapboxgl.Map to initialize a Mapbox map inside an HTML element on a webpage.

You can use the map parameters style, center, and zoom to define the initial appearance of the map. The Mapbox Standard Style is enabled by default when no style option is provided to the Map constructor.

The string value for accessToken should be a valid access token from a Mapbox user account.
