MapTiler Cluster

MapTiler Pro (former MapTiler Cluster) is a software for automated tile pre-rendering, which allows efficient and fast paralellized rendering of your raster geodata into map tiles suitable for Google Maps API mashups, native mobile applications (iPhone/iPad/Android) with Apple MapKit, RouteMe or OSMDroid.

It automatically produces large seamless maps from several input files and directly optimize the produced tiles (up to 70% smaller). The produced PNG/JPEG tiles are heavily optimized for minimal filesize which allows extremely fast distribution of maps from any ordinary webserver or from a cloud CDN (Rackspace Cloud Files, Amazon S3/CloudFront, Google Cloud Storage). Such interactive maps appear instantly, which is ideal in use cases such as aviation maps, nautical charts or large base maps.

MapTiler Pro is 3-4x faster in rendering then the GDAL2Tiles on a single core - and the speed almost multiplies with every CPU core you add. The whole utility has been completely reimplemented in C/C++ and supports multi-core rendering and utilize clever data caching.

An example to demonstrate it’s power: Rendering of map (51025x73135 pixels) with raster reprojection on a standard computer with 16 cores against GDAL2Tiles:

MapTiler Cluster 50x faster then GDAL2Tiles with half of the size tiles!

The software is distributed as binary under a commercial license starting at 2750 CHF (Swiss Franks) for 4U version. Multilicense or a cluster version using MPI standard is available as well. To experience advantages of MapTiler Pro...

Technical features:

  • Supported operating systems: Linux/UNIX, Windows, Mac OS X
  • Excellent visual quality: techniques such as antialiasing, color corrections and sharpening during the post-processing of map tiles
  • Precise location of the geodata: even "over-zoomed" input data are correctly located (excellent for coverage maps, for example)
  • High-quality optimization of tiles (using the smallest PNGs/JPEGs tiles) - to speed up the delivery of maps and to save the disk space
  • Rendered geodata are suitable for use in Google Maps mashups, mobile applications and interactive web presentations
  • It is possible to merge several input raster files and produce a large seamless map directly as a result of the fully automated tile rendering process
  • The system supports wide variety of coordinate systems and map projections as defined in EPSG database
  • Our customers are allowed to use this software for their commercial or non-commercial projects same as GDAL2Tiles utility.
