Documentation

The following tutorials explain how you can use the OSM2VectorTiles project. Feel free to submit an issue, if you think something is missing.

Introduction Video

Video introduction to vector tiles, the project and how to use provided vector tiles to create your own styles and maps. We recommend watching this video to get a broad overview what can be done with OSM2VectorTiles and then dig into the tutorials.

Academic Material

OSM2VectorTiles arose from a bachelor project. The original thesis is available publicly and if you wan’t to dig deeper you are welcome to read the thesis.
