The history of vector tiles in three maps

January 7 10:00 pm 11:00 pm SAST

David Heyman makes maps about time. Not about time itself, but about artifacts, and the time-based stories that are tied to city space: buildings and architecture, landscapes and surveys, photographs and plans. He designs interactive map applications that serve data from the spatial humanities to learners and explorers.

In this talk, Heyman will discuss pilotPlan and other projects about Brazilian architecture that he built in partnership with researchers at the Humanities Research Center at Rice University, describing how his application architecture for interactive map applications has evolved with time and emerging technologies – from Mapnik to MBTiles.
