ProtomapsJS is a new map renderer based on web technologies such as Canvas and TypeScript. ProtomapsJS is open source at http://github.com/protomaps/protomaps.js and can be used with the Leaflet map library. It is designed to be used with OpenStreetMap-based vector tiles as a data source.
I will give an overview of how to develop custom maps with ProtomapsJS, with a focus on these applications:
- Making multilingual maps with Traditional Chinese as well as other languages and romanization
- Features for rendering CJK map labels
- Implementation of Unihan glyph variants
