Note however rendering OSM-Carto without labels and producing a separate client side rendered labeling would be a possible approach. Vector tiles is a buzzword occasionally suggested as a solution to any and all problems in map rendering but so far i have not seen any practical proposal for a client rendered vector tiles concept that would be able to serve the mapper feedback purposes of the current OSM standard style. Rory's port of OSM-Carto to vector tiles is not suitable for client side rendering. -- Christoph Hormann http://www.imagico.de/ _______________________________________________ talk mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/talk
