Generate raster image tiles for use with leaflet.
Example in action.
It adds the option
--leaflet to generate the resulting images with the reference point
[0,0] in the upper-left (North-West) corner, opposed to the standard behaviour for TMS tiles using the lower-left (South-East) corner.
On Debian style OS:
sudo apt install python-gdal
sudo apt install python3-gdal
for others give your search-engine a try...
$ gdal2tiles.py -l -p raster -z 0-5 -w none <image> <tilesdir>
Check test/createtiles.sh for usage.
-z option is omitted then the tool considers the min. zoom level otherwise note...
Note: The min zoom level for tile generation must be greater or
Assuming an image with 2000x3000 pixels:
# take the larger dimension -> here height = 3000px $ echo "l(3000/256)/l(2)" | bc -l # 3.55 --> min zoomlevel for tile generation is 4 # means: `gdal2tiles.py -l -p raster -z 0-2 ...` # \__ is not allowed # correct usage $ gdal2tiles -l -p raster -z 0-4 ...
The same works with multicore support, thanks to gdal2tiles-Ticket-4379.
$ gdal2tiles-multiprocess.py -l -p raster -z 0-5 -w none <image> <tilesdir>
Usage with Leaflet
To use the generated tiles with Leaflet there is a small plugin to correctly set the required projection for raster images. Please refer to the documention at leaflet-rastercoords.
To run the example you'll need to generate the tiles for the large image first.
$ cd test $ ./createtiles.sh $ open index.html
