Mapbox Tiling Service warnings

Public beta

Mapbox Tiling Service is in public beta. All features and workflows are subject to potential changes.

This guide outlines warnings that you might see when publishing tilesets using Mapbox Tiling Service (MTS).

Types of warnings

Even a successful MTS job may have some warnings, indicating that some features in your tileset source(s) were dropped in the resulting tileset. Each warning contains information about how to make sure the feature is not dropped in your next job.

W201One or more features were dropped due to tile size limits. For troubleshooting, read our documentation on what to do if you see gaps of missing data in your tiles.W201: Features were dropped from mountains layer in 2 tile(s) to enforce tile size limits. Affected zoom levels are: 0,2
W202One or more features were dropped due to decoding errors.W202: LineString must contain at least 2 points - Example: {"id":5,"type":"Feature","properties":{},"geometry":{"type":"LineString","coordinates":[]}}
W203One or more features were dropped due to encoding errors.W203: Invalid number of points in polygon ring, can not encode - Example: {"id":18,"type":"Feature","properties":{},"geometry":{"type":"Polygon","coordinates":[[[100.0,0.0],[101.0,0.0]]]}}

Note: W202 and W203 errors are capped to 20 per job, and may not include all the decoding/encoding errors in your source data.
