This enhancement to the gdal2tiles.py script includes the following additional features:
- Parallel processing, to use all available machine cores when generating tiles. This speeds up tile creation considerably.
- Support for both the TMS and XYZ tile cache formats. Use the -o flag to choose; XYZ is the default format.
- Support for both PNG and JPEG tile outputs. Use the -f flag to choose; PNG is the default format.
gdal2tilesp.py --help to check all the command-line parameters of the script.
