Update a choropleth layer by zoom level

This map uses 2014 U.S. Census data to create two layers. One layer contains a choropleth visualization for state populations, and one layer contains a choropleth visualization for county populations.

The example defines a zoom level at which each layer and its respective legend should appear or disappear using the minzoom and maxzoom layer properties.

You can use getZoom to use zoom values to control the appearance of other elements.

Use a custom tileset

This example uses 2014 U.S. Census data that was uploaded to Mapbox as a vector tileset. This data is not updated or maintained and should not be used in production applications.

If you're interested in creating an application that uses U.S. Census data, you can download a Shapefile from census.gov's data portal and upload it to Mapbox Studio's Tilesets page.
