@mappingmashups Jul 01, 12:03pm I’ve been browsing WebGL map implementations for #geowebchat: There’s the new @Mapbox GL, cool stuff from @mapzen, also @GLMapFramework
@bohuang3d Jul 01, 12:09pm @mappingmashups @professorlemeza @mapzen #geowebchat love it. What’s the vector format like
@mappingmashups Jul 01, 12:16pm Also, in last #geowebchat we talked mainly about vector data tiles and WebGL, but arguably #d3js is another vector revolution in web maps…
@apollolm Jul 01, 12:17pm #geowebchat Been experimenting with consuming Vector Tiles in a @LeafletJS canvas layer. Works well! Also looking at @mapzen work!
@mappingmashups Jul 01, 12:19pm @apollolm Cool! What styling language are you using for your vector data in canvas? #geowebchat
@woolie Jul 01, 12:19pm #geowebchat I’m experimenting with Mapbox vector tiles to make interactive maps from census data.
@bohuang3d Jul 01, 12:21pm @mappingmashups Adobe Flash. Hehe me outcast #geowebchat
@apollolm Jul 01, 12:23pm @mappingmashups #geowebchat Brute forcing it now using regular canvas stroke and fill properties. Will use converter from nodeTiles soon.
@apollolm Jul 01, 12:24pm @mappingmashups #geowebchat Nodetiles github project uses a CartoCSS parser to convert to canvas styling…slick.
@mappingmashups Jul 01, 12:25pm @apollolm Interesting! I’m curious if CartoCSS will be able to evolve with the vector era? I know it won’t be part of #MapboxGL #geowebchat
@bohuang3d Jul 01, 12:28pm @mappingmashups @apollolm My understanding is dom elements using Canvas is not implemented with webgl right #geowebchat
@allafarce Jul 01, 12:37pm @mappingmashups @professorlemeza @apollolm Aside, that’s the fine work of @codeforamerica folks @bensheldon @Mr0grog @yuletide #geowebchat
@bohuang3d Jul 01, 12:38pm @mappingmashups @mapzen @OpenScienceMap I love how the coast lines are rendered and wonder how it’s done. #geowebchat
@apollolm Jul 01, 12:40pm @mappingmashups #geowebchat yes, that is the project. In nodetiles-core/libs there is a cartoRenderer.js file. I think the logic is there
@mappingmashups Jul 01, 12:40pm @bohuang3d @OpenScienceMap Are you talking about the coastlines in the @mapzen demo? Can you share a screenshot? #geowebchat
@professorlemeza Jul 01, 12:44pm Only on Android. Web renderer is a new WebGL project MT @mappingmashups: @mapzen’s vector rendering is built on @OpenScienceMap #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Jul 01, 12:44pm Talking about styling languages, has anyone used #MapCSS? Looks like that’s what @GLMapFramework uses. Any better for vectors? #geowebchat
@professorlemeza Jul 01, 12:46pm @bohuang3d @mappingmashups @mapzen we construct a polyline outline around the coastline polygons and style those separately #geowebchat
@bohuang3d Jul 01, 12:47pm @mappingmashups @OpenScienceMap @mapzen These coastline as OSM Ways would span many tiles. Perhaps some processing to split? #geowebchat
@bohuang3d Jul 01, 12:50pm @professorlemeza @mappingmashups @mapzen And split the east coast polyline into the millions of tiles it goes through? #geowebchat
@professorlemeza Jul 01, 12:53pm @bohuang3d @mappingmashups @mapzen oh, the coastline polyline is added as each tile is rendered client-side #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Jul 01, 12:54pm RT @woolie: @professorlemeza Is there a configuration to generate the entire set and cache as mbtiles for easier deployment? #geowebchat
@tmcw Jul 01, 12:54pm @mappingmashups @apollolm moving towards JSON-encoded styles. CartoCSS was built around Mapnik’s rendering model exclusively #geowebchat
@tmcw Jul 01, 12:55pm @mappingmashups @GLMapFramework the CSS metaphor for maps doesn’t have the same ring it used to + JSON tooling is far better #geowebchat
@professorlemeza Jul 01, 12:56pm @woolie @bohuang3d @mappingmashups I’m sure it could be, we are refreshing the OSM data daily and regenerating tiles on demand #geowebchat
@mappingmashups Jul 01, 1:01pm Well, we’re at the end of another #geowebchat. Thanks for joining, and enjoy the #worldcup game everyone!
@mappingmashups Jul 01, 1:03pm Next #geowebchat will be on July 15, at the same time. Topic TBD. See you all then!
@apollolm Jul 01, 1:03pm #geowebchat how is interaction with WebgL handled? Click events? Mouse over?
