Module: ol/layer/VectorTileRenderType




Render mode for vector tiles:

  • 'image': Vector tiles are rendered as images. Great performance, but point symbols and texts are always rotated with the view and pixels are scaled during zoom animations.
  • 'hybrid': Polygon and line elements are rendered as images, so pixels are scaled during zoom animations. Point symbols and texts are accurately rendered as vectors and can stay upright on rotated views.
  • 'vector': Everything is rendered as vectors. Use this mode for improved performance on vector tile layers with only a few rendered features (e.g. for highlighting a subset of features of another layer with the same source).
