Using local glyphs for CJK text instead of embedded fonts can have significant performance improvements for your map. CJK glyphs are detailed and heavy in terms of file size, so we offer a feature to bypass remotely loading fonts and default to a local font that’s already on your user’s phone or computer.
Vertical layout for CJK text on line labels
When designing labels for roads or other line-based features, you can display your text vertically along the line’s path.
