Tron 2.0 — Creating a Visual Language of Scale
Today we introduce TRON version 2 as a fully realized Mapzen house style, rebuilt from the ground up to take advantage of the latest features of the Tangram graphics engine and Tangram blocks. With this new version, visual forms and elements transform per zoom, revealing new cartographic details and a deep exploration of scale transformations.
We’re pushing both the medium and mapping to new extremes with TRON, and it will push your GPU and fan to the limit. We want to let everyone know what is possible in OpenGL and WebGL, and designed it for game developers to remix.
Will autonomous cars dream as they charge overnight? Mapzen’s Tangram lets us imagine! Explore TRON v2 in this interactive map, and keep reading to dive into its visual language of scale.
