What is MapProxy

MapProxy is an open source proxy for geospatial data. It caches, accelerates and transforms data from existing map services and serves any desktop or web GIS client.

Run container

You can run the container with a command like this:

docker run -v /path/to/mapproxy:/mapproxy -p 8080:8080 yagajs/mapproxy

It is optional, but recommended to add a volume. Within the volume mapproxy get the configuration, or create one automatically. Cached tiles will be stored also into this volume.

The container normally runs in http-socket-mode. If you will not run the image behind a HTTP-Proxy, like Nginx, you can run it in direct http-mode by running:

docker run -v /path/to/mapproxy:/mapproxy -p 8080:8080 yagajs/mapproxy mapproxy http

Environment variables

  • MAPPROXY_THREADS default: 2

Enhance the image

You can put a mapproxy.yaml into the /docker-entrypoint-initmapproxy.d folder on the image. On startup this will be used as MapProxy configuration. Attention, this will override an existing configuration in the volume!

Additional you can put shell-scripts, with .sh-suffix in that folder. They get executed on container startup.

You should use the mapproxy user within the container, especially not root!


You are invited to contribute new features, fixes, or updates, large or small; we are always thrilled to receive pull requests, and do our best to process them as fast as we can.

Before you start to code, we recommend discussing your plans through a GitHub issue, especially for more ambitious contributions. This gives other contributors a chance to point you in the right direction, give you feedback on your design, and help you find out if someone else is working on the same thing.
