MapLibre Teams Up With Stamen to Work on Native SDK

There’s some real momentum right now surrounding MapLibre. AWS started sponsoring the project in August; there’s talk about joining the MapLibre and Maputnik communities, and now Stamen is getting involved to work on MapLibre’s native SDK. 

Stephanie May, Damon Burgett, Stamen:

We are happy to share that we have begun work on improving MapLibre Native with technical leadership by Wet Dog Weather and funding from AWS.

The announcement from the MapLibre organisation provides further detail:

A design proposal for the modularization of the map rendering architecture can be found at #547. This modularization will allow new rendering architectures to be implemented quickly and more easily, and we anticipate that the modularization will give us a concrete framework to better interrogate various migration strategies.

I love this approach, gathering feedback from the community before starting the work to make actual changes to the code and architecture.
