Finding your Tileset ID

If you want your dataset to compile to a tileset so that you can use your dataset in a displayed map, you’ll need to create a tileset. To create a tileset, you’ll need to have at least one point in your dataset. Save your dataset ID in the Simple Mapbox Data settings, then publish one point. Then, follow the below steps to publish a tileset.

  1. Log in to your Mapbox account.
  2. Click “Studio” in the top navigation.
  3. Click “Tilesets” in the sub-navigation.
  4. Click “New Tileset.”
  5. Click “Create from Dataset”
