Editing a Tile Service

To edit an existing tile service, follow the steps given below:

  1. Click on the Third Party Tile Service that you wish to edit. The Tile Service is displayed on the screen.
  2. In the Tile URL Template enter full URL including placeholders. For example, http://tile1.maps/aerial/{LEVEL}/{ROW}/{COL}.png
  3. In the Additional Subdomains text box, enter additional subdomains (if available). For example, tile2,tile3,tile4. It should be separated by comma (,).
    Note: Additional Subdomain option is not available for MVT (vector).
  4. Under the Tile Settings presets, you can select any one of the following two options:
    • Europa TMS (for UK)
    • Spherical Mercator (XYZ)
  5. Select the projection from the Coordinate system drop-down list or click on the to open the Coordinate System dialog box.
  6. Select the Tile format. You can choose Image or MVT (vector) format.

    Both tile formats display the following options:

    Tile scheme Displays the tile scheme.
    Starting level Displays the starting level.
    Tile pixel size Displays the pixel size.
    Maximum zoom level Displays the default zoom level for tiles.

    Rendering a tile layer in Spectrum Spatial Analyst generates a request for tiles from the third-party service up to the maximum zoom level. For zoom levels beyond that, it stretches the tiles that were retrieved for the maximum zoom level. This ensures tiles are shown at all levels for a project and not left blank.

    CORS enabled Select to check if the tile server supports CORS (Cross-origin Resource Sharing).

    Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) is a W3C standard that allows data sharing between domains. CORS enables web applications running in one domain to access data from another domain.

    Bounds Displays the bounds.

    Selecting MVT (vector) displays an additional option:

    MapBox style JSON* To provide custom style for MVT, you can paste the MapBox Style JSON in the text box.
  7. Click on the Preview button to preview the tile image.
    Note: Preview option is not available for MVT(vector).
    Note: License Information: Please ensure that you are appropriately licensed for the tile service layer you are configuring and if needed add the appropriate copyright text to the map configurations that use the layer.
  8. Click Save button to save the updated Tile Service configuration or click Cancel to exit editing the tile service flow.

The tile service is now updated.
