My main current focus is on devops technologies applied to geospatial develepment. In particular for webmapping.
Baremaps is an open-source framework for creating vector tiles. It assists the cartographer in customizing the content of the vector tiles, iterating on the associated style. Once the vector tiles and associated stylesheet are ready, Baremaps can be used to serve them dynamically or to generate them and publish them on cloud object storage. This process is critical to build robust and dynamic web mapping experiences.
In contrast with bitmaps, vector tiles are rendered on the device of the user, which enables maps to match the context of the users (e.g. commuting) and to dynamically adapt when it changes (e.g. entering a building). A web cartographer can use baremaps to develop both the style and data content at the same time using the embedded development server. During this workshop, we will create a map based on OpenStreetMap data, we will include a third-party dataset in the vector tiles and demonstrate the creation of a dynamic web mapping experience. Finally, we will demonstrate how to publish the vector tiles on Amazon S3 and serve them with a content-delivery network.
