Around & Around the Eiffel Tower

OSM Buildings is a JavaScript library for visualizing OpenStreetMaps building geometry on interactive maps. Thanks to a new demo map using Mapbox GL you can explore OSM Bulidings from a completely new perspective.

One of many great features in Mapbox GL is the Mapbox GL rotate event. Using the rotate event in Mapbox GL allows you to change the orientation of a map. In the new OSM Buildings GL Preview this means you can rotate the map and view the 3d buildings from all angles.

On this page you can view images of the Tate Modern in London with the map orientated to the south and to the north. When using the OSM Buildings GL Preview map you need to right-click on the map to start rotating the map and left-click to turn off rotation.
