Mapbox Vector Tiles Extension
Mapbox Vector Tiles
The GeoPackage Mapbox Vector Tiles extension defines the rules and requirements for encoding vector tiles in a GeoPackage data store as Mapbox Vector Tiles. This extension is based on the Mapbox Vector Tiles (MVT) specification version 2.1. Note that this format uses Google Protocol Buffers as the content encoding for each tile.
This extension, like all GeoPackage extensions, is intended to be transparent and to not interfere with GeoPackage-compliant, but non-supporting, software packages.
