feature querying

Feature querying is the process by which features in a tileset are identified at a specific location. For example, if you have a map with a layer representing parks, you can use Mapbox tools to see if a park feature exists at a specific coordinate.

Feature querying powers many advanced map visualizations that allow users to select specific points to discover the data lying underneath. Feature querying can be performed on web maps with Mapbox GL JS, the Mapbox Maps SDK for iOS, or the Mapbox Maps SDK for Android.
