Got an interesting problem? Want to know more about things we’re doing? Just want to say hi? Send us <,3 Tangram is a flexible, hackable mapping engine, designed for real-time rendering of 2D and 3D maps using vector tiles and the OpenGL family of graphics libraries. Built around OpenStreetMap data, Tangram provides optional control over almost every aspect of the map-making process, including cartography, lighting, and geometry customization. is a modern geocoding and place search service based on Mapzen’s open source geocoder and powered by open data. It’s used to transform the way people talk about places – with names and addresses – into geographic coordinates, and to translate geographic coordinates into recognizable names of places. is an open-source routing service for client-side routing applications and hosted solutions. Based on OpenStreetMap road network data, Mapzen Turn-by-Turn can provide directions anywhere on the planet. Vector tiles are awesome for generating real-time renderings of map data. We wanted to make it easier for developers to experiment with them without having to set everything up themselves, so we’re running a free vector tile service for OSM base layer data that lets you get right to work.
