Project description

python-vt2geojson Build Status

Dump vector tiles to GeoJSON from remote URLs or local system files.

Inspired from


pip install vt2geojson


Using the CLI:

vt2geojson --help

Making a GeoDataframe from a PBF vector tile file:

import geopandas as gpd
import requests

from import vt_bytes_to_geojson


x = 150
y = 194
z = 9

url = f"{z}/{x}/{y}.vector.pbf?access_token={MAPBOX_ACCESS_TOKEN}"
r = requests.get(url)
assert r.status_code == 200, r.content
vt_content = r.content

features = vt_bytes_to_geojson(vt_content, x, y, z)
gdf = gpd.GeoDataFrame.from_features(features)


  • Add more test using vector-tile/test/fixtures/*.vector.pbf data files.


This library has only been tested against Python 3.6.
