iOS Question

MapBox water/land detection

I am starting to use the MapBox iOS SDK.

Is there any possible way to query the MapView by a coordinate and get back the terrain-type (water, land) as a result?

I've been reading the API doc for quite a while now, but could not figure it out.
I know that there are (interim) solutions available to use a Google webservice, but I need this to work offline.

I am not bound to MapBox (but I like it) though, thank you for any hint!

The answer is: it is not possible

The only way to do this offline is building a custom solution with e.g. OSM data.
