We like maps that engage, inform and also add something to a dialogue. We've said time and time again that maps are for much more than directions. Halloween maps are without doubt engaging so it's great that we have a festival that helps drive and celebrate them.
Temporal maps change over time. Vector tiles provide an enabling technology to make them happen. Nautoguide tell you how they did it.
We use Mapserver a lot within Nautoguide and I’ve spent a significant amount of time building map files to create our base mapping. Some of these are quite complex as they traverse multiple data sets and sources, including shapefiles and PostgreSQL connections.
