Maps are a great way to give pilots the ability to browse the airspace before a flight in the Discovery phase. The AirMap Platform includes a Tile Map Service that allows developers to visually display airspace and advisories to pilots as an overlay. AirMap also provides SDKs to do most of the heavy lifting and supports a variety of mapping libraries on both web and mobile.The Tile Map Service uses Mapbox Vector Tiles and therefore will only work with mapping libraries that support MVT tiles (or those than can convert them). See below for a full list of options for displaying maps:
Our maps for web don't quite yet support Contextual Airspace and rulesets (like on app.airmap.com), so for now you will have to manually select which advisories to display. But it's coming soon!
MapBox GL JS: Don't want to use our SDK, but still love Mapbox? Check out this guide.
OpenLayers 3: Another great open source option
- Tile Server: Interact directly with the tile server. Best for custom mapping engines. Recommended for advanced developers only.
