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). For this reason, AirMap recommends using Mapbox for the easiest implementation and best user experience. See below for a full list of options for displaying maps:
- Mapbox Contextual Airspace Plugin: The fastest and easiest way to display contextual airspace maps in your web applications using Mapbox
- Tile Server: Interact directly with the tile server. Best for those that are not using Mapbox or need more customization. Recommended for advanced developers only.
