Top 23 vector-tile Open-Source Projects

  • mapbox-gl-js

    Interactive, thoroughly customizable maps in the browser, powered by vector tiles and WebGL

    Project mention: 75% of Nova Scotia's population lives in the red areas | | 2022-05-20

    Do you have programming skills? MapboxGL JS is a great library for stuff like this, you can really easily add a layer of GeoJSON data to a map. If you're looking for something less technical Google map lets you create custom maps where you can add a bunch of pins.

  • mapscii

    🗺 MapSCII is a Braille & ASCII world map renderer for your console - enter => telnet <= on Mac (brew install telnet) and Linux, connect with PuTTY on Windows

    Project mention: Yes, this thing exists and works better than google maps | | 2022-06-29

    See this issue on github

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • Mapbox GL

    Interactive, thoroughly customizable maps in native Android, iOS, macOS, Node.js, and Qt applications, powered by vector tiles and OpenGL

    Project mention: Max zoom levels? | | 2022-03-26

    Yes, I'm using the Flutter MapBox GL project (that uses the native implementation, which is mostly written in C++). I'm using vector tiles, and it's getting down to 1.35cm/pixel for iOS and .12cm/pixel for Android at my latitude; I believe this is level 22 for iOS and 25.5 for Android.

  • tippecanoe

    Build vector tilesets from large collections of GeoJSON features.

    Project mention: Reducing vector tile size in QGIS for Mapbox import | | 2022-07-01

    Unsure how to do it with qgis. however it seems to be simple with They seem to have some examples that show what you need to do in the readme.

  • tangram

  • openmaptiles

    OpenMapTiles Vector Tile Schema Implementation

    Project mention: Show HN: Flatmap – a new tool to create vector tiles from OpenStreetMap data | | 2021-10-25

    Flatmap calls into user-defined profiles in 2 places: first when processing each input element to map it to a vector tile feature, then a second time right before emitting all vector features in a layer.

    That second call lets you manipulate vector features on each tile using JTS geometry utilities (i.e. merge nearby polygons or lines with the same tags). PostGIS uses GEOS which is ported from JTS so you have access to pretty much the same geometry utilities - often with the same name.

    It's definitely not as flexible as a PostGIS based solution - especially if you join faraway features that don't appear on the same tile, but in practice it was enough to port the entire OpenMapTiles schema.

    See the basemap layers package:

    For example see the landcover layer:

    Which was ported from the SQL contained in:

    Also, this OpenMapTiles PR might help improve your pipeline after it gets merged:

    Hi I am trying to with leaflet. I have seen that there are no typings for that project so I have created leaflet.vectorgrid.d.ts and used as typings. I have imported both like this:
