[ ] Create fully automated deployment pipeline.
[x] Use some caching mechanism for vectortiles
[x] Use Typescript and typed interfaces where possible
[x] Have module tests with tsjest/chai
[ ] Generate useful documentation with typedocs
[ ] Learn more about AWS, terraform and typescript
[ ] Use free-tier if possible.
