Maptime Boston: Vector Tiles Workshop

  • CIC Boston - Meridian, 5th floor Conference Center 50 Milk Street Boston, MA 02109 United States (map)

Maptime is a monthly meetup where we work on maps, learn about geospatial data, and teach each other the latest cartographic tools. This month gives guests tools and tips on how to use Vector tiles in their mapping. 

Vector tiles are a way to deliver geographic data in small chunks to a browser or other client app. Vector tiles are similar to raster tiles but instead of raster images the data returned is a vector representation of the features in the tile.

Niene Boeijen, a developer at Webmapper and Maptime Amsterdam organizer, will be in Boston to lead a workshop all about vector tiles. At the end you'll have a better understanding of how vector tiles and vector maps work, and how to create your own. Don't forget to bring a laptop!

All skill levels are welcome. Beginners are especially welcome! For more details and to register, visit the Meetup.
