Vector Tiles from OpenStreetMap
This video introduces OSM2VectorTiles – a project to create free downloadable vector tiles from OpenStreetMap.
Project website: http://osm2vectortiles.org/
OSM2VectorTiles is an Open Source Project to create free vector tiles from OpenStreetMap data that you can use to create your own maps.
First we need to explain what tiles and vector tiles are. The idea of tiles is to divide the map into many small square images that are joined on the client side. This allows smoother user experience and has many advantages for serving the tiles fast. Since the same tiles always cover the same areas they can be precomputed and cached.
Tiled raster maps are now replaced by vector tiles emerging as the new standard but the same tile principles can be applied to vector data.
Since clients are more powerful it is now possible to render the map on the device itself and only send the actual polygons, line strings and points and their associated metadata to the client which turns it into a beautiful map. This enables next generation user experience with styles customised for the user language, resolution, day or night time.
It also means that now we can create vector tiles only once and let other developers and cartographers style them, which is the goal of OSM2VectorTiles.
You can get vector tiles from commercial providers such as Mapbox. But not everyone can depend on a third party. OSM2VectorTiles is an alternative for all those who want true Open Source vector tiles and complete control over the data. With OSM2VectorTiles you can host the tiles yourself or use them offline without having to tiles yourself. You can download vector tiles for more than 200 countries and around 700 cities.
And you are still able to use industry leading tools from Mapbox.
The vector tiles can be used together with the Mapbox mobile SDKs. Since you are able to download the vector tiles it is possible to create stunning mapping applications that even work offline. You can stay independent but still create great commercial apps.
With our public CDN it is easy to get started with your first map.
To host the vector tiles yourself choose an extract and download it.
Visit the public endpoint to check your self hosted vector tiles.
To create a custom style you download an extract and upload it to Mapbox Studio.
We are excited to see what developers will build. Read the documentation on the website and collaborate with us on GitHub (https://github.com/osm2vectortiles/osm2vectortiles).
