Add another 'Maps' Library


Mapbox GL Native

A library for embedding interactive, customizable vector maps into native applications on multiple platforms. It takes stylesheets that conform to the Mapbox Style Specification, applies them to vector tiles that conform to the Mapbox Vector Tile Specification, and renders them using OpenGL. Mapbox GL JS is the WebGL-based counterpart, designed for use on the Web.

The Mapbox GL ecosystem

This repository hosts the cross-platform Mapbox GL Native library, plus convenient SDKs for several platforms. The cross-platform library comes with a GLFW-based demo application for Ubuntu Linux and macOS. The SDKs target the usual languages on their respective platforms:

SDK Languages Build status
[Mapbox GL Native](INSTALL.md) C++14 Circle CI build status Coverage Status
[Mapbox Maps SDK for Android](platform/android/) Java Circle CI build status
[Mapbox Maps SDK for iOS](platform/ios/) Objective-C or Swift Circle CI build status
[Mapbox Maps SDK for macOS](platform/macos/) Objective-C, Swift, or AppleScript Circle CI build status
[node-mapbox-gl-native](platform/node/) Node.js Circle CI build status
[Mapbox Maps SDK for Qt](platform/qt) C++03 Circle CI build status AppVeyor CI build status

Additional Mapbox GL Native–based libraries for hybrid applications are developed outside of this repository. If your platform or hybrid application framework isn’t listed there, consider embedding Mapbox GL JS using the standard Web capabilities on your platform.
