Although vector tiles are usually created only in Web Mercator projection (EPSG:3857), we are able to encode and display the vector tileset in any other coordinate system that is suitable for your project.

There is no performance loss in comparison to the same tileset encoded in Web Mercator and the tiles are usable in the same viewers.

We are able to provide data in any requested coordinate system. If you have any request, please

Custom coordinate systems with Mapbox SDKs

All open-source SDKs from Mapbox can display the custom prepared vector tiles in the non-Mercator coordinate, such as the Swiss coordinate system (EPSG:21781) in this example, even on native mobile applications.

Vector tiles in your EPSG

OpenLayers and other viewers can directly display the vector data from tiles prepared by our process without reprojecting and loss of precision, if the original data such as cadastral maps are directly encoded with OpenMapTiles workflow.

Web mapping services compatible with existing WMTS

The same style can be applied to create a web mapping services perfectly compatible with existing national WMTS endpoints - for standardized use in QGIS and ArcGIS.

Try it yourself

Open the following files in QGIS or ArcGIS:

WMS https://swiss.openmaptiles.com/services/wms?service=wms&request=GetCapabilities&version=1.3.0
WMTShttps://swiss.openmaptiles.com/services/wmts/1.0.0/WMTSCapabilities.xml

Other coordinate systems

We are able to provide data in any requested coordinate system.
