GLOTTER has received a major Update recently. The Google Maps API has been replaced by the new Mapbox GL API.
What are the advantages of Mapbox GL?
- Mapbox is a Mapping Software Provider which has specialized in Web mapping and provides/supports OpenSource software
- The maps are rendered in WebGL
- Better user experience, higher resolution and anti-aliased fontstyles
- The camera position can be adjusted in all directions (Tip: Press the right mouse key while moving the map!)
- Emojis can be used as placemarks 😃
All existing maps have been migrated. The usability of the website should remain the same and everything should look familiar to our users.
If you have questions on the update or noticed issues after the migration, please get in touch https://www.glotter.com/contact and ask for help!
