All uses of Mapbox’s custom maps and data must attribute both Mapbox and the appropriate data providers. Mapbox’s custom design is copyrighted and our data sources require attribution. This requirement extends to all plan levels.
If you are using Mapbox maps with another open source library, like Leaflet or OpenLayers, attribution is still required. These libraries don’t automatically add necessary attribution, so you’ll need to add it yourself.
The technique is similar for other frameworks: simply take the HTML code from the Static & Print section above and add it to the attribution control in the framework.
If you’re using a mapping library without an attribution control, put the HTML attribution on your page near the map. If you’re using a mobile framework without attribution support, put the text attribution into the “Credits” section of your app.
Reporting attribution problems
Attribution is required because
Mapbox’s map designs are copyrighted
OpenStreetMap data source’s ODbL license requires attribution
Other data sources used in our satellite, streets, and terrain maps also require attribution
You may report or inquire about sites that are in possible violations of these terms through our contact form.
If your map does not use any of these data sources, and does not use Mapbox’s designs, like Streets, Light, or Outdoors, then you are not required to provide attribution.
You can adjust the font color and size to match your theme, but attribution must be clearly legible.
