Python library to stitch and crop OpenStreetMap tiles.


Create a 200x200 pixels image of an area between latitues (45.2775, 46.3785) and longitudes (13.5261, 14.9271):

slipy_map = mod_tilestitcher.SlippyMapTiles()
image = slipy_map.get_image((45.2775, 46.3785), (13.5261, 14.9271), 200, 200)

The library will try to find the needed tiles and the best zoom, stitch them and crop to cover the needed area.

The resulting image is a PIL Image object.

Note that bigger images will need more tiles. By default the library is limited to stitch 2 tiles horizontally and 2 vertically. If you need more (but keep in mind the OSM tile usage policy!):

slipy_map = mod_tilestitcher.SlippyMapTiles(max_tiles=3)

If you plan not to use the best zoom, but the second best zoom (one level smaller):

slipy_map = mod_tilestitcher.SlippyMapTiles(nth_best_zoom=1)
