gdal2tilesp.py dos2unix Mar 2, 2015




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.

Run gdal2tilesp.py --help to check all the command-line parameters of the script.


  • The epsg::900913 projection code is not supported, use epsg:3857 to generate a tile set in web mercator projection.
