Kontur team has years of experience in creating basemaps for various domains and purposes: disaster management, logistics, games, agriculture, business intelligence, and many others. Regardless of the purpose, a basemap is a fundamental map layer containing geographic information to provide location references for any data layers visualized on top of it.

Utilizing the proper basemap can make a difference between a map with confusing colored lines and tiles and a clear, insightful message you actually need for your analytics.

Vector Global Basemaps

Our meticulously designed map styles are crafted to complement your data visualizations seamlessly. With Kontur Lines or Kontur Zmrok as your foundation, you can layer choropleth maps confidently, knowing that the underlying design will support and enhance the representation of your data.

There’s no competition for attention; your data takes center stage, ensuring a clean, undistorted, and accurate depiction of the trends and patterns you wish to convey.

Kontur Lines

Light basemap

Crisp and unobtrusive background, perfect for overlaying detailed data. Light color scheme provides excellent readability and a contemporary feel, ideal for applications that require a clean and professional look.

This clean style is used extensively in Disaster Ninja.

Kontur Zmrok

Dark basemap

Sleek and modern aesthetic. The dark backdrop creates a stark contrast for data points, making them stand out vividly.

It’s best suited for dynamic visualizations and applications used in low-light conditions where a darker theme can minimize strain on the eyes.

This basemap style is used in Global Fires interactive map.

Benefits of Our Map Using Vector Tiles

Disaster Management Specialization

Kontur’s experience and focus on disaster management could be a strong USP. Offering basemaps optimized for emergency response, with features tailored for disaster risk assessment, could position Kontur as the go-to provider for organizations involved in this field.

Regular OSM Data Updates

With updates every 2 days incorporating the latest OpenStreetMap data, Kontur ensures that users have access to the most current and accurate geographic information. This frequency is particularly vital for applications requiring up-to-the-minute data, providing a significant edge in decision-making processes.

Customization with MapCSS

Leveraging Kontur’s proficiency in MapCSS for deep customization could appeal to clients needing tailored visualization tools. This could be particularly enticing for sectors like urban planning, environmental monitoring, and business intelligence.

On-premise Deployment Capability

With increasing concerns about data privacy and security, offering robust on-premise deployment options can be a USP, especially for clients in sensitive or regulated industries.

Open-source Tiling System Support

For clients who prefer or require open-source solutions, Kontur’s support for this could be a differentiator, particularly if you offer excellent documentation and community support.

Language Switching Feature

In a globalized world, the ability to switch languages on-the-fly can make Kontur’s basemaps more accessible and user-friendly for international clients.
