The Mapbox Vector Tile Javascript SDK parses Mapbox vector tiles and allows you to create large maps quickly, while offering full design flexibility. Vector Tiles are the vector data equivalent of image tiles for web mapping. They provide a way to apply the strengths of tiling, which are developed for caching, scaling and serving map imagery, rapidly into vector data. Vector Tile's represents data based on a square extent within a projection and have advantages over fully rendered image tiles such as styling and size. Any map data you upload with Mapbox Studio is converted into vector tiles before styling. Mapbox is an open source mapping platform for developers.
