Glower is a library for visual interaction with UTFGrid-enabled tilesets like those generated by TileMill and served by MapBox Hosting. It uses HTML5 Canvas to render approximated highlighted areas, and is thus incompatible with older versions of Internet Explorer and ancient versions of other browsers without the usage of excanvas.



The third argument, an options object, is optional.

var glow = glower(map, tilejson, {
    fillStyle: 'rgba(1, 100, 200, 0.7')'

glow.fillStyle('rgba(1, 100, 10, 0.7')');
