mTiler - A Map Tiling Utility
The goal of mTiler is to develop a utility application that can merge map tiles generated by various other mapping applications.
To understand what I'm trying to achieve with this utility, let's look at an example. mTiler works on a project directory similar to the following:
|--RRG Whole (EXPORT)_F4_atlas |--|--14 |--|--|--4379 |--|--|--|--6332 |--|--|--|--6333 |--|--|--|--6334 |--|--|--|--6335 |--|--|--4380 |--|--|--|--6332 |--|--|--|--6333 |--|--|--|--6334 |--|--|--|--6335 |--|--|--[...] |--|--[...] |--RRG Whole (EXPORT)_F5_atlas |--|--[...] |--|--|--[...] |--[...]
The first level of directories (E.G. 'RRG Whole (EXPORT)_F4_atlas') are the atlas project directories. Within these directories are various directories representing different zoom levels on a map (E.G. 14, 17, etc.). Within the zoom level directories are the map regions (E.G. 4379, 4380, etc.). Finally, within each map region are the tiles for that region (E.G. 6332, 6333, etc.).
The vast majority of these tiles contain incomplete data. For example:
The purpose of this app is to compare the tiles from the map regions across all of the atlas project to align them and create a new tile with all of the missing data filled in.
mTiler is designed to be extremely easy to use. Simply set the input path to point to the raw tiles that need to be merged and the output path to be the directory you want the resulting, merged tiles to be written to. Once this is done, simply hit the Start button and let mTiler do its thing!
NOTE: I recommend making your output directory seperate from the input directory, though it isn't necessary.It'll simply keep things cleaner ;)
