Vizlib Tiles Guides - Tile Components Glossary

Vizlib Tiles objects can be broken down into Components, each of them with a specific meaning. 


We've put together a Glossary to help you understand what terms like layer and margin mean within the context of a tile visualization, and included an example tile format to point out where the components are located (Figure 1). Just cross-reference the numbers in the example with the glossary table.
