Teaches how to add mvt and pbf tile data produced by Mapbox to the map.

Admin 10.03.2020 Category : WEB GIS Education Documents

GISLayer Software presents vector data in the form of XYZ, as in the principles of tiling. Therefore, instead of adding a whole vector data to the map, the vector data loaded in the XYZ tile logic according to the separated zoom level and the width of the map will provide a better performance instead of uploading the large number of data to the map when it decides what data it needs to get. This results in a higher performance than loading all data on the map. Such a method has been developed because performance and time are valuable in online transactions. Other advantages of the method are; to be able to get information from vector data on the map, to access their geometry and to change the appearance styles.

Step 1: Access the Add Vector Tile Service Panel

Adding Vector Tile Service in the GISLayer Software can be performed by clicking on the “Add Vector Tile Service” button in the “Add Service” drop-down list under the ” Data” tab.

The following screenshot shows the process steps in numerical order.

Step 2:Providing Vector Tile Service Information

In GISLayer Software Add PBF Service Panel has some fields that the users need to fill in. If we briefly describe these fields that need to be filled;

  1. Layer Name: You can set the name by which the service is displayed in the Layer Box.
  2. PBF URL Address: The URL address of the service provider is entered (required). XYZ Tile is the same as adding URL logic.
  3. EPSG Code Search: If a projection system is available it is filled in here.
  4. EPSG List: The projection systems that can be selected are listed and one of them is selected.
  5. Add: Use to add the PBF Tile Service to the map

Example URL: https://{a-d}.tiles.mapbox.com/v4/mapbox.mapbox-streets-v6/{z}/{x}/{y}.vector.pbf?access_token=

Note: You need to enter Mapbox Apikey

The fields that we have defined above in the Add PBF Tile Service Panel are shown in the screenshot below.

Step 3: Adding and Viewing Vector Tile Service

After filling in the required fields in the Add PBF Tile Service Panel and clicking the Add button PBF Vector Tile Service is added to the Layer Box and displayed on the map.

The following screenshot shows the result view.
