vector tile service

A vector tile service is a data hosting service that provides vector tile data and a style definition. Vector tile services are created and managed using data management tools and are accessed with a REST API. Mapping applications typically use client APIs and vector tile services to access vector tiles through a vector tile layer and display them in a map or scene using a style definition. A vector tile service can also package vector tiles for use offline as vector tile packages. Basemap layer services are also vector tile services.
