Crowdfunding: Support for Vector Tiles in QGIS

FEBRUARY 24, 2020 crowdfunding qgis

We are happy to announce a new crowdfunding campaign to support Vector Tiles in QGIS!

This will be a great step for QGIS to support an increasingly popular technology used in web mapping to deliver maps that are faster and more flexible at the same time.

With native support for Vector Tiles in QGIS, you will be able to add more resources to your QGIS map:

  • Support for remote resources (e.g. HTTP/HTTPS map tiles)
  • Handling local vector tiles (in XYZ format)
  • Handling database vector tiles (Mapbox Vector Tiles format)

The target amount is 8,000 € and the campaign will be active until 20 March 2020.

Please have a look at the dedicated page Vector Tiles support in QGIS for further details and help us spread the word!
