Tron-style slippy map

Oct 14, 2016

Mapzen just released a Tron-style slippy map.

Today we introduce TRON version 2 as a fully realized Mapzen house style, rebuilt from the ground up to take advantage of the latest features of the Tangram graphics engine and Tangram blocks. With this new version, visual forms and elements transform per zoom, revealing new cartographic details and a deep exploration of scale transformations.

It’s slick. Be sure to zoom in.
