Mapbox Studio Classic is a standalone map design application that uses vector tiles. Mapbox Studio Classic gives you instant streaming access to massive global tilesets like Mapbox Streets, Mapbox Terrain, and Mapbox Satellite without importing any data onto your computer.
You can also create your own vector tiles using traditional formats (Shapefile, GeoJSON, KML, GPX) and upload directly to Mapbox to deploy your vector tiles at scale.
