The Survey of Vectortile techniques: Static vs Dynamic
06-30, 14:30–15:00 (Europe/Tirane), Mirusha

Vectortile ecosystem have made big changes in Web Mapping, especially in terms of Client-side map rendering. Thesedays, costs of producing and streaming tiles have been dramatically reduced by some techniques - tippecanoe, PMTiles… and so on. However we have the problem important but unsolved yet: Dynamic tiles. Techniques which are matured and widely used are for Static tiles. Static tiles are not good at streaming data frequently updated but we sometimes need to dynamically serve such data. In this talk, I’ll survey techniques for Dynamic tiles which already exist and propose the solution for this.
