Mapbox Tiling Service

Tileset recipes

A tileset recipe is a JSON document composed of configuration options that tell Mapbox Tiling Service (MTS) how to turn tileset source data into vector tiles. Recipes allow you to specify details like:

  • The minimum and maximum zoom levels at which you want the features in your tilesets to be visible.
  • How much you want to simplify the geometry of your features.
  • How you want to union your features based on their attributes.
  • Expression-style filtering of data.
  • Other data aggregation and manipulation functionality.

Recipes must be constructed according to the rules in the Recipe specification. To see example recipes for frequently-requested use cases, see the Recipe examples page.
