TileStream Hosting Adds Street Level Layer Options for Embedded Maps

Use MapQuest or Google Maps to bring street level data to your map

We recently added the option to display a street level layer below your custom map layers when using TileStream Hosting. With this new feature, it’s now easy to make custom maps that have detailed street level data at deep zoom levels without having to gather and style street data on your own. Instead, you can focus on designing custom overlay layers in TileMill with your own data, and use existing street level layers.
Using the TileStream embed builder, you can turn the street level layer on with a single click, allowing for it to be used for a single layer map or complex composited maps.

Turn on existing street layers to add to your map in TileStream

To create this map I took a custom point overlay that we designed in TileMill for the DC nonprofit A Wider Circle and enabled the street level layer.
