Vector Tiles in Geospatial Mapping

Data icon, disabled. Four grey bars arranged like a vertical bar chart.

The research question is “How can vector tiles and maps be used in DataSys lab’s creation, the GeoSpark software, to provide the most user-friendly interface possible?” In order to determine its compatibility to be used with the constantly changing world of vector maps, tests of run time and interface efficiency trials are to be done by the research team in full length and repeatedly. Once the vector tiles are implemented to cover entire maps by GeoSpark, a better use experience for clients will be provided and the software will be at the forefront of web mapping.
