Description

What is OpenLayers?

An opensource javascript library to load, display and render maps from multiple sources on web pages.

What is CARTO?

The CARTO platform empowers everyone, from business analysts to data scientists, to turn location data into business outcomes. We accelerate innovation, power new use cases and disrupt business models through Location Intelligence.

What is TileStache?

TileStache is a Python-based server application that can serve up map tiles based on rendered geographic data.
