Mapbox Studio Classic is no longer in active development. To learn more about our newer mapping tools see the Mapbox Studio Manual.

Transition to Mapbox Studio

Mapbox Studio Classic has been replaced by Mapbox Studio, an improved and expanded editor that offers more design control with an easier-to-use interface.

Where are my projects and styles?

You can access your Mapbox Editor projects, Studio Classic styles, and Tilemill styles in Mapbox Studio. Click the Classic styles and Editor projects tab section.

Classic styles and projects will stay online and continue to work in websites and applications, but cannot be edited in Mapbox Studio.

Where is my data?

You can access your tilesets in Mapbox Studio. Click the Tilesets tab on the left-side navigation. You cannot access your raw data in Mapbox Studio. When you upload data from Mapbox Studio Classic to your Mapbox account, it is stored only as tilesets.

Will Mapbox Studio Classic still be available?

Yes! While Mapbox Studio Classic is no longer the recommended way to create maps on our platform, you can still download it from, upload styles and sources, and browse documentation.

Can I use vector tile sources from Mapbox Studio Classic?

Yes! The vector tile format used by Mapbox Studio Classic is the same as the vector tiles that power Mapbox Studio. You can use any vector tile data sources you’ve created in Mapbox Studio Classic as data in Mapbox Studio.

Can I use Mapbox Studio Classic styles in Mapbox Studio?

No. Mapbox Studio uses the Mapbox Style Specification, which is incompatible with CartoCSS, the language used by Mapbox Studio Classic. There is no automatic method to convert one from the other. We recommend recreating Classic styles in Mapbox Studio. To get started with the Mapbox Studio style editor see the Mapbox Studio Manual and the Create a custom style tutorial.

Can I export images for print from Mapbox Studio?

While Mapbox Studio does not have high-resolution export feature, you can use the Static API to get an image of your map style. Read more about static maps in the Static and print maps guide.
