*The answer to most (all?) of your questions are somewhere on the web!
See: They are just little images cleverly stitched together!
Thanks @lyzidiamond & Mapbox for the info!
THE BEST STUFF EVER
"Feature layers are map layers that live on top of your base tiles. Sometimes you can interact with them (clicking to produce a popup, for example). "
Feature layers are typically geospatial datasets such as...
Imagine: Spreadsheet + Polygons in geospace
Probably your most common geospatial data types. We <3 geojson!
Note: we can directly upload a .csv file into Tilemill if it includes columns with latitude & longitude coordinates
Today, we will render Feature Layers as Tiles
There are also things called "vector tiles" but we won't get into those today...
Check out Tilehut.js to get started setting up your own tileserver!
While the web stack is indeed a magical combo, today let's not worry about those gritty details.
Instead, let's let Tilemill and Mapbox work their magic and help us build our first interactive web map.
