OGC API - Tiled features demonstration

This module provides an example of extending the OGC API - Features module with a building block from OGC API - Tiles, used for tiled access to raw vector data (the vector tiles modules is included).

This module is not required to use vector tiles, it’s also possible to use OGC API - Tiles directly, see OGC API - Tiles, along with the installation of the vector tiles extension.

Installing the GeoServer OGC API tiled features module

  1. Download the OGC API nightly GeoServer community module from geoserver-2.26.x-ogcapi-tiled-features-plugin.zip.


    Verify that the version number in the filename corresponds to the version of GeoServer you are running (for example geoserver-2.26-SNAPSHOT-ogcapi-tiled-features-plugin.zip above).

  2. Extract the contents of the archive into the WEB-INF/lib directory of the GeoServer installation.

  3. On restart the services are listed at http://localhost:8080/geoserver


Upon installation, the OGC API - Features API will show the following extensions:

  • Conformance classes are expanded with OGC API - Tiles ones

  • Tile matrix sets links from the home page

  • Collections with vector tiles enabled will have a “data tiles” link pointing at the tiles endpoint
