Example of loading large geojson into Mapbox GL JS

Example - Large geojson in Mapbox GL JS

* Load svg icon appears while data is loading
* Uncompressed geojson file is 29 MB on dropbox
* Total time to load depends on client internet speed & client GPU
* Geojson source is split into two parts to optimize load and render time

Not at all! Happy to update this example as well since people find it useful. Thank you both.

Hi @ryanbaumann,

Question regarding Geojson source is split into two parts to optimize load and render time

Thank you for the example. We have some similar requirement to load large geojson to mapboxgl. Having said that, We are considering splitting our geo json into smaller chunks.
That is the reason i stumbled across your example. However, i am trying to understand where exactly we have splitted geo json in your example and how are we fetching the other pieces of it and appending to map source?

I see we addSource just once. 'https://data.cityofnewyork.us/resource/h9gi-nx95.geojson'
