A breaking release (x.0.0) is one that

  • changes the style's version field
  • removes or renames an icon
  • removes or changes a glyphs URL
  • removes or changes a source
  • removes or renames a style layer
  • changes the semantic meaning of a layer

A feature release (0.x.0) has no breaking-release changes and

  • makes any non-breaking change to styles
  • makes any non-breaking change to sprites
  • adds a new style
  • adds a new icon

A fix release (0.0.x) is one that has no feature-release changes and

  • fixes an invalid stylesheet or bad test


The following styles are provided:

Basic (basic-v8)

Simple and flexible starting template.

Bright (bright-v8)

Template for complex custom basemaps.

Satellite (satellite-v8)

A beautiful global satellite and aerial imagery layer.

The preferred way to use these styles in Mapbox GL JS or the Mapbox Mobile SDKs is via a mapbox:// URL.


var map = new mapboxgl.Map({
    container: 'map',
    style: 'mapbox://styles/mapbox/streets-v8'


mapView = [[MGLMapView alloc] initWithFrame:self.view.bounds
                                   styleURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"mapbox://styles/mapbox/satellite-v8"]];


MapView mMapView = new MapView(context, "Access Token");
