Map Tiling Service

The Map Tiling Service dynamically renders subsets of a map on a per-request basis. This subset is called a tile. The tiles rendered from the Map Tiling Service can be used individually, or combined to form larger maps, in applications for seamless map interaction. This service provides fast, simple, light-weight map rendering where more complex map rendering can be performed using the Mapping Service.

This service provides operations that:
  • lists the available tiles
  • describes the metadata for a specific named tile
  • gets tiles based on the input parameters
