About this episode
Mapbox Tiling Service (MTS) is a tool for creating vector tilesets. With MTS, you use sets of configuration options (tileset recipes) to transform your geospatial data into dynamic and powerful vector tiles. The resulting tiles are hosted on Mapbox servers for use in your applications.
Vector tilesets are helpful if you want to visualize a large amount of data on a map quickly. When creating vector tiles, you can turn gigabytes of raw geospatial data into mere kilobytes. With MTS, you have precise control over the visual design, data hierarchy, and performance of your tilesets.
You’ll learn how to...
- Use the Tilesets CLI to create a tileset
- Use and modify tileset recipes to customize your tileset
- Improve the cartography of your map through recipes
- Optimize your tileset to make a better map
