Vector Tileset thunderforest.outdoors-v1

This was our second vector tileset to be designed, and contains all the information needed to render maps such as our Outdoors, Landscape and OpenCycleMap layers. Notably it contains a rich set of points of interest, along with topographic information such as contours and hillshading.

The tilejson endpoint for this vector tileset is
