Map Tiles Visual Side Effects RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Choice of icon (example dark border) and ordering of points can give a nice side effect of visual density.

    Have to be careful depending upon the data density and zoom levels. There can be undesired effect of convergence when the point ordering/rendering is done in a specific way which I only ran across at furthest zoomed out levels. The last points rendered on the tiles appeared aligned in my case horizontally along latitudes due to zoom level convergence/point ordering.

    Otherwise it was a cool side effect stumbled upon.

    Can be avoided by pseudo random point ordering in selection of points within tile bounds but this loses the effect.

    Below is example of the visual effect of density.
