This Mapbox SDK provides C++ headers that support rendering geodata into vector tiles and rendering vector tiles into images. It is a Mapnik implementation of the Mapbox Vector Tile specification. Vector tiles make large maps quickly while offering full design flexibility. They are the vector data equivalent of image tiles for web mapping, that applies the strengths of tiling, developed with caching, scaling and serving map imagery rapidly in mind. Mapbox is an open source mapping platform for developers that provides tools for Maps and location data, Location based games, VR and AR applications and more.
This is the fourth part of our series How to Add Postcode-Based Proximity Search With Open Data. In this article we will show you how to take a geocoded dataset and a postcode, and order the dataset by proximity to the postcode. This is used to find the nearest pub to a user specified location.
New tools and accessibility options have been added to the Opendatacommunities API to extend ease-of-access to the UK Government’s five-star dataset managed by the Department for Communities and Local Governments. Datasets include neighborhood-level analysis of housing and homelessness, quality of life indicators, and wellbeing measures.
A showcase of visualizations and interactive dashboards has been created to demonstrate how developers, data analysts and local communities can use the open datasets to better understand the interplay of economic and lifestyle factors on specific neighborhoods across the UK.
