TileMaker creates vector tiles (in Mapbox Vector Tile format) from a PBF Format file. This requires no database and there is only one executable to install.


This format of vector tiles can then be used with a variety tools listed here, as client map displays or server-side map rendering.

Tilemaker was created by User:Richard


Obviously the more canonical way to produce the mapbox format of vector tiles, would be to use mapbox tools (Mapbox Studio), but this command line approach has fewer dependencies and runs without user input (e.g. as part of a toolchain running on a server)

There are a number of other command line tools for generating the tiles.
