WMTS Tile Generator

Spectrum Spatial provides an OGC-compliant Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) built to the OCG specifications for WMTS versions 1.0.0 (located at http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/wmts).

The WMTS Tile Generator is a command line utility that enables a user to execute batch runs to generate map tiles for the WMTS service and also to seed the WMTS tile cache. This utility can be downloaded from the Spectrum Spatial section of the Welcome Page, under WMTS Tile Generator on the Utilities tab. For more information about Spectrum Spatial's support for WMTS, see Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) in the Services section of the Spectrum Spatial Guide.

  • Tiles need to be generated on the server.
  • The WMTS Tile Generator requires the JAVA_HOME variable to be set to the location of the installed JDK (Java 8 is required).
  • Ensure that Basic authentication is not disabled when using this tool.
