FOSS4G 2023

Serverless Planet-scale Geospatial with Protomaps and PMTiles
06-28, 11:00–11:30 (Europe/Tirane), Mirusha

Protomaps is a simple, self-hostable system for tiled vector datasets. In the year since last FOSS4G, we've rolled out a new compressed specification (V3), added support for tile generation tools, and open sourced key integrations with content delivery networks. This talk will give an overview of:

  • Why you might want to, or not want to, deploy Protomaps for your application
  • PMTiles write support in the popular Tippecanoe and Planetiler tools
  • The new open source integrations of Protomaps with AWS Lambda and Cloudflare
  • Overview of real-world deployments for users in web GIS, journalism and the public sector
