There are many cases where you want to provide vector tiles to Altus on demand, but the most common reason is because you have a database full of vector data that you want to flow into Altus. Altus makes this kind of stuff easy, as demonstrated here. In this case, the code is set up so the engine requests vector tiles, and the code fulfills the requests with tiles filled with a translucent vector triangles. In a typical application, you would request vectors from the database to fill the tile and send the vectors back to the engine.
