My Own Map server, Making my maps look like Mapbox streets or Skobbler


I want to make my own map server However, I need to find the right style

The OSM style is pretty ugly, I really like the Skobbler maps http://maps.skobbler.com/ or Mapbox streets

I basically want to copy these designs and have my maps look the same Are these styles publically available? does anyone have a link or method for obtaining them?

Is it as simple as downloading mapbox studio, selecting the Mapbox street template and exporting the styles and giving to the guy who is creating WMS ?


If you're using CartoCSS to style your maps, you can find lots of open stylesheets online, including Mapbox Streets. There are a few other examples listed Maptime's Lessons and Resources page.

How you apply the stylesheet to your map will depend on what tools and data you'll be using for the final product, but you can always take a look at how the above styles are structured by opening up their.tm2folders and looking at the CartoCSS.
