Glossary: Mapbox.js

Mapbox.js is a JavaScript library that allows you to add an your interactive map to your website. It is a plugin for Leaflet, and it is an open source library that’s free to use.

Mapbox.js is great for adding custom markers, loading data dynamically, building completely custom interactions, and more.

You can use any Mapbox classic styles (both pre-defined and custom-created with Mapbox Studio Classic) as basemaps in Mapbox.js. For overlay data, you can load GeoJSON files directly using Mapbox.js. You can also load CSV, GPS, KML, and several other file formats using Leaflet’s Omnivore plugin.
