This Mapbox Python SDK reads Mapbox Vector Tiles and allows access to the layers and features. The Vector-tile-py library parses Vector Tiles using the Mapbox Vector Tile Specification which is a specification for encoding tiled vector data. Vector tiles are the vector data equivalent of image tiles for web mapping, that apply the strengths of tiling and were developed for caching, scaling and serving map imagery rapidly into vector data. Mapbox is an open source mapping platform for developers.
The W3C announced 3 APIs in various stages of development. The TV Control API and Webmentions API were released in development states while the Geolocation API has reached its second edition. Expanded location sources power the Geolocation API and the other APIs further propel the connected world.
Thirteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Location, Time Tracking, Weather, and Virtualization. One highlight today is the meteoblue API for graphical weather synopsis information for locations. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
