  1. Latest and optimal web mapping technology for UN operations and

    Member States UN Vector Tile Toolkit
  2. 2 Web maps changed our daily life.

  3. 3 The platformers’ web maps are great, but it does

    not always fit for all purposes.
  4. 4 Sometimes public organizations need different maps.

  5. 5 Public organizations deserve the latest technology. Make it possible.

  18. 22 UN Vector Tile Toolkit Optimize performance Disseminate disaster risk

    information Visualize agricultural plots
  19. One more thing 23

  20. Project continues toward a more portable Toolkit 24 Deployment and

    technology transfer are next challenges after initial development. A tiny $35 computer originally developed for education and IoT is promising. We expand our contribution by making the technology easier and portable.
