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 typically accessed by their item ID or URL. 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.
