What is the difference between Leaflet and Mapbox, and how are they used together? Like the API and what exactly are they and is Mapbox using Leaflet?


1 Answer 1


Leaflet is a Javascript Map Client API - it requests images from services like MapBox and provides the panning / zooming experience you'd see in Google Maps or similar. You'd use the two together - MapBox provides tiles of maps, and Leaflet makes them usable in web pages.
