“OpenMapTiles: news, thematic layers, and coordinate systems”
2019-08-30, 09:00–09:20, Hora Room
OpenMapTiles is an open-source set of tools for processing OpenStreetMap data into zoomable and web-compatible vector tiles, which are ready to use in OpenLayers, Mapbox GL, Leaflet, QGIS as well as mobile applications.
This talk gives an overview of the major changes in the project.
Apart from providing a base map of the whole world, the same principles of OpenMapTiles can also be used to create various thematic layers.
We'll also talk about and demonstrate a possibility to build on top of the OpenMapTiles tools to produce the vector tiles in different coordinate systems while keeping all the features, such as interactivity to create powerful region-specific applications.
