Vector tiles for OpenStreetMap
PM Check date:
Standard rendering of OpenStreetMap is still as images. There is quite a bit of open source software for vector tile rendering, but nothing is yet comparable to the rich map generated by the openstreetmap-carto style available for image generation server side. Also, some vector tile software is needlessly complicated and unmaintinable for a community (currently maintained by corporations, but who knows for how long). We would like to find some solution for community provided vector tiles. Putting existing software together, or creating missing pieces.
