The following figure illustrates an example of a view of the earth rendered from the data.

Continent View
Figure 1. Continent View

The layer content is defined as follows.

  • Layer name: earth
  • Geometry types: point, line


There is a key difference when compared to the Tilezen's implementation, as HERE only includes label positions and label texts for islands and continents. This means that HERE does not include the polygon geometry type for this layer.
