Openlayers 6: call for funding

The Openlayers Development Association is launching a call for funding

15.01.2019 | www.geo.admin.ch

openlayers6

 

The Openlayers project has been developed and maintained since the last major crowdfunded version 3 by dedicated companies and enthusiast developers. The project has seen numerous contributions and has achieved a major refactoring (ol5), using the new opportunities of Javascript ES6 modules.

Major contributions aiming to support Vector Tiles according to the Mapbox specifications were added to the library. The advantages of Vector Tiles are significant, both in terms of data processing and from the client perspective, such as user-centric map display, performance gains and offline use.

The next major development initiative is aimed at improving the user experience with Vector Tile layers, reworking the strategy for tile loading, parsing, and rendering. This involves a major refactoring.

More information on openlayers6 and the call for funding is available on github.com/openlayers
