Mapbox Style Specification¶
A Mapbox style is a document that defines the visual appearance of a map: what data to draw, the order to draw it in, and how to style the data when drawing it. A style document is a JSON object with specific root level and nested properties. This specification defines and describes these properties.
The intended audience of this quick reference includes:
Advanced designers and cartographers who want to write styles by hand.
GeoTools developers using the gt-mbstyle extension
Authors of software that generates or processes Mapbox styles.
The specification is reproduced here with details on the GeoTools MBStyle implementation. Where appropriate examples have been changed to reference GeoWebCache.
