Learn how to create beautiful maps with Rust.

Mapping in Rust

Sadly, there are no tools in pure Rust to create maps. There are tools to handle GIS and geography, but nothing is completely devoted to map creation.

Therefore, we only have a few options to choose from, which might be appreciated by those who need to handle geographic data in Rust.

Currently, we have two main options:

  • Use what the ecosystem provides, even if it is incomplete and labor intensive.
  • Integrate the Rust ecosystem with other tools, such as creating interactive maps with JavaScript to show in a browser.

We’ll show an example of both methods.
