A flexible mapping engine, designed for real-time rendering of 2D and 3D maps.
After inputting your data source, you determine how the data is interpreted by applying top level layer filters and lower level feature filters which split the data and allow you to specify styling rules to highlight particular facets of data on the map. For example, this demo filters map data relating to roads so that features like tunnels and highway ramps can be spotlighted using different styling rules.

An example: Atlantic´s Citylab
Leverging Tangram, the Atlantic´s Citylab project created 3D cityscapes based on OpenStreetMap files. The maps provide moving visions of the city, with extruded buildings and animated traffic, that allow the user to get a sense of the city´s lifeblood.
