Vector tiling aims at cutting vector data into smaller entities. It offers several opportunities, especially for the development of web-mapping systems, such as the possibilities to apply different styles, to access attributes or to render 3D data. Today no open and widely adopted standard exists for the implementation of web services involving vector tiles. In this paper we investigate several important parameters that need to be considered for the implementation of vector tile services. We
