MapLibre with its open nature is uniquely positioned to support high-quality geospatial visualizations in science, politics, tech, and arts. Because the world is changing so fast, it’s never been more important than right now to invest in this effort.

As a Board member of MapLibre, I’m focusing on getting the long-term strategic decisions right, so the user story will be as simple and intuitive as possible. That means making sure that it’s trivial to use MapLibre across web frameworks, game engines, native cross-platform compilers, etc. We will achieve that by supporting modern graphics APIs and embracing partnerships amongst projects in the open ecosystem.
