Leveraging Vector Tiles to Query Statewide Habitat Data in a Browser.  Need to use large datasets for environmental projects? This is the talk for you!  We’ll dive into the process we used to make a statewide wildlife habitat dataset of 1 million polygons accessible in the browser. Previously, GIS technicians took minutes or hours to process this huge data set for custom operations in order to answer questions about habitat details on specific sites. Now, a user can draw a custom area in a browser window and return results in seconds, enabling efficient compliance with environmental regulations. Learn how we used multiple open source libraries/tools like GDAL ogr2ogr, Tippecanoe, Turf, and Mapbox GL JS to build the tool.
