Our cartographers have created two tightly constrained color palettes that use slight shifts in hue and value to provide depth and space without overwhelming overlaid content.
Mapbox Streets data
Mapbox Light and Dark use the same vector tile source as our general-purpose maps and contain the full range of geographic information required to provide context for overlays.
Light and Dark are specially designed to show a full set of cartographic features without distracting from your content. Our designers have modified every element of these maps – thinning line widths, lowering label densities, reducing contrast – to make sure they always complement your project.
