This talk presents a simple way to generate and use your own vector tiles. The idea is to have raw data tiles in the binary OSM PBF format, that are not optimized and thus provide all options for interactivity and rendering in modern browsers. As long as there is no global service to serve such tiles, the Mapsplit tool can be used to split an extract of your area of interest into tile files that can be read directly in the browser - no need for a database or a server.
