This is a simple sinatra app for making plain one colour tiles for mapping applications It generates plain colour 256x256 tiles in response to a resquest like http://example.com/red/1/3/4.png It used imagemagick to generate the colours and so all valid colour names (675 possible colours) from http://www.imagemagick.org/script/color.php#color_names are valid. For example: wheat, snow4, red, HotPink1 etc It was developed in response to a GeoCommons user wanting a plain tile backgroud to show their data upon, and as an exercise for me getting to know the Heroku platform - for which this application should work. There is a deployed version of this application at: http://plaintiles.herokuapp.com And so a valid tile URL would be http://plaintiles.herokuapp.com/HotPink1/1/1/1.png Here's the tiles being used in GeoCommons: http://geocommons.com/maps/180483 Code: https://github.com/timwaters/plaintiles Enjoy! @tim_waters
