A handy library in case you ever want to apply some logic to all/some vector tiles in an MBTiles file without having to worry about how to pull, decode, alter, encode and store them again.

It's pretty simple: you define a source and a destination - and a callback which gets called with a deserialized tile object as soon as the async grinder parsed another tile. The library transparently takes care of compression, protobuf and geometry de-/encoding and rebundling of the altered data into a new MBTiles.

Take a look at tileshrink to see what you can build with it!

Requirements

  • tilegrinder uses the native protobuf wrapper library node-protobuf for its magic

  • To let it build during npm install, take care of following things:

    • Linux: libprotobuf must be present (apt-get install build-essential pkg-config libprotobuf-dev)

    • OSX: Use homebrew to install protobuf with brew install pkg-config protobuf

    • Windows: node-protobuf includes a pre-compiled version for 64bit systems

How to install it?

  • Just install it into your project folder with

    npm install --save tilegrinder

How to code it?

Following example will

  • create a new MBTiles file simple.mbtiles containing the tiles of the first 4 zoom levels of planet.mbtiles

  • only the water, admin and road layers are kept

  • while all points get moved by an offset of 256

const TileGrinder = require('tilegrinder')
    , grinder = new TileGrinder({maxZoom: 4})
 
grinder.grind("planet.mbtiles", "simple.mbtiles", tile => {
 
  // Only keep the road, water and admin layers
  tile.layers = tile.layers.filter(layer =>
    layer.name === "water" || layer.name === "admin" || layer.name === "road"
  )
 
  // Move each point a bit around
  tile.layers.forEach(layer => {
    layer.features.forEach(feature => {
      feature.geometry.forEach(geometry => {
        geometry.forEach(point => {
          point.x += 256;
          point.y += 256;
        })
      })
    })
  })
 
})

Which will generate following output:

bash$ node example.js
