    How come these map projects still use raster tiles? Are there no open source map projects that render the OSM data to vector data, and renders that vector data on the clients GPU? Maybe raster tiles are better at something I'm missing, but vector maps are easier to style[0], localize, they're sharper, easier to rotate and zoom smoothly. Maybe it's harder than I think to render it on all sorts of clients including mobile?

    When writing this I found out that MapTiler[1] is maintaining MapLibre GL JS[2], a fork of a Mapbox project to do just that. It would be interesting to see the difference between self hosting raster and vector maps and compare pros and cons. You can even render raster tiles from vector tiles on the server if the client needs it[3].

    Small note clarification about MapLibre. It's a vendor-neutral project supported by a lot of different industry participants (including AWS & Meta).

    Very nice work! Sleek interface. I'll need to field test it soon ;)

    Have you by any chance also evaluated MapLibre (https://maplibre.org/) as an alternative to Leaflet. I'm just wondering if anyone has any insights on how they compare. I use MapLibre for one of my side-projects [1].

    What are you using as source for height data (I see the curve colors represent the altitude). I've noticed that one of the most commonly used datasets [SRTM](https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/products/srtmgl1v003/) has some deviation compared to OSM data in high latitudes. E.g. some peak locations from OSM don't match to the contour lines from SRTM. But I have never found any further infos about this.

  • Getting Started with MapLibre GL JS
    5 projects | dev.to | 6 Oct 2022
    Ola Campus Pune is known for its innovation in the mapping and geospatial industry. We have a diverse team of software engineers, data scientists & GIS Technologists; trying different tools & experimenting with other technologies is something we always promote. MapLibre GL JS is one such library we are working with, and it is an open-source mapping library for web & mobile applications.
  • How to build an online route planner with Amazon Location Service
    4 projects | dev.to | 13 Sep 2022
    We will build a Vue app using Amazon Location Service, as the basemap provider and routing API, MapLibre GL JS, as the map rendering library, and Naive UI, as the UI component library. The app will have a map with navigation controls and a route calculator that finds the fastest route using a number of parameters such as different modes of transportation (car, truck, and walking), departure time, avoidances (ferries and tolls), and weight and size limitations for trucks — the following screenshot shows the end results.

    I’d recommend taking a look at Maplibre GL JS[0], which is a fully open source map library. It was forked from Mapbox GL JS just before licence change, therefore it’s also fully compatible with the style spec etc.

    It’s also actively maintained and has a strong community behind it.

    I did also replaced Mapbox GL with MapLibre because even if not using the Mapbox tiles Mapbox now requires you to have an API-key. This I don't like and is the sole reason I made the switch.
  • How to add a location search widget to your web app using Amazon Location Service
    7 projects | dev.to | 13 Jul 2022
    In this post, you will learn how you can add a location search widget to your web app using Amazon Location Service’s Places API. We will build the app using AWS Amplify and Vue — We will create, deploy, and manage AWS resources using Amplify CLI and we will build the app components using Amplify JavaScript and MapLibre GL JS. The app will have a basemap with navigation controls and a location search widget with geocoding, reverse-geocoding, and autocomplete support — the following GIF shows the end results.
  • How to build an interactive map using Amazon Location Service and MapLibre GL JS
    2 projects | dev.to | 6 Jun 2022
    In this post, I will show you how you can build an interactive map using Amazon Location Service, as the basemap provider, and MapLibre GL JS, as the map rendering engine. The map will have navigation controls, a layer control, and a marker with popup information — the following screenshot shows the end results. You can use this project as a starting point for building a web map and customize it to display your stores, real estate properties, or places you have visited on an interactive map.
