Vector Tiles API

Introduction

The Vector Tiles API serves vector tiles from NextBillion.ai’s vector tile sets. A vector tile contains the vector data about the geometries and metadata - like road names, place names etc in the form of points, lines and polygons. These tiles can be used as a source for styling or for creating an interactive map experience for your users.
