Description

What is Leaflet?

Leaflet is an open source JavaScript library for mobile-friendly interactive maps. It is developed by Vladimir Agafonkin of MapBox with a team of dedicated contributors. Weighing just about 30 KB of gzipped JS code, it has all the features most developers ever need for online maps.

What is TileStache?

TileStache is a Python-based server application that can serve up map tiles based on rendered geographic data. You might be familiar with TileCache, the venerable open source WMS server from MetaCarta. TileStache is similar, but we hope simpler and better-suited to the needs of designers and cartographers.

What is Mapfit?

Use cutting-edge maps with seamless APIs, frameworks, and data licensing at a fraction of what competitors charge.
