We are happy to share that we have begun work on improving MapLibre Native with technical leadership by Wet Dog Weather and funding from AWS.
MapLibre Native is an Open Source SDK for rendering maps on mobile and other devices. We at Stamen rely on map renderers to display the beautiful maps we create for our clients, so are excited to work on this effort.
The first stage, underway now, is planning for modularization of rendering within MapLibre. This will be followed by a separate proposal for migrating the Maplibre iOS SDK from OpenGL to Metal.
What to learn more? Read the official MapLibre announcement here.
