Access tokens
All you need to start using Mapbox is an access token: it's a short code that lets you use your Mapbox account's capabilities. You can use the same access token with our interactive mapping libraries, Python and JavaScript SDKs, and even directly against our REST APIs. You can create and manage your access tokens in Mapbox Studio.
