Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Since WebOffice 10.8 SP2 it is possible to integrate Vector Tile Services into WebOffice flex. In contrast to cached Map Services Vector Tile Services are not based on raster technology, but on vectors. Therefore they are calculated faster and need less disk space.
