Wrap labels around mountains with 3D Terrain in Studio

Feb 3, 2021

3D Terrain is now live in Mapbox Studio! I’m already using it to test some new ways to wrap labels around mountains in 3D. Right now I’m playing with the sky controls in Studio - using the Gradient center to cast a beam of light.

Wrapping Labels around mountains

I created this directly as a dataset, using separate circles for each letter in Mapbox Studio. That way I can control it how I like.

And added some streams.

I posted a step by step guide for modifying the textual aspect of the label in Studio, which is critical for map legibility, and can be customized to drive better engagement.

Tweet @jonni_walker + @mapbox to share with me what you are building.
