Mapbox Tileset

I have several layers that I have created in Mapbox. I don't understand how to use Add New Layer/Mapbox Tileset to bring the layers into SARTopo. It's asking for my Tileset ID; I am not sure what that would look like or where to get it from Mapbox Studio. Can you get me started in the right direction?

    I'm not super familiar with Mapbox but I did find these instructions in an old thread and hopefully they will help point you in the right direction:

    In Mapbox, open your tileset, and click "make public" at the top of the right bar. This doesn't automatically share your tileset with everyone in the world, but means that CalTopo/SARTopo can access it - as with our maps, you still need to know the tileset ID to view the tiles.

    Below that is the "tileset ID" field. Copy that ID.

    Now in SARTopo, click Add New Layer -> Add Mapbox Tileset. Enter the tileset ID, give it a name, and hit save.

    Hope that helps!
