Habar n-aveam că Maps servește tile-uri vectoriale :smiley:

In 2013 Google Maps released a major update to maps.google.com that stopped using PNG tiles for images, and started downloading vector tiles. These vector tiles are still referenced by their tile coordinates, still behave very similarly to the raster tiles, but instead of being an image, they contain all the labels, paths, and polygons—and are drawn on the client.
