Browser Compatibility

The latest version of the JavaScript Maps SDK with vector data is supported in browsers that support WebGL, a method of generating dynamic 3D graphics using JavaScript, accelerated through hardware. The JavaScript Maps SDK is compatible with all modern browsers, specifically:

Support for IE 11 can be improved with a JavaScript polyfill:
