This article describes the file naming conventions for the Slippy Map application.

  • Tiles are 256 × 256 pixel PNG files
  • Each zoom level is a directory, each column is a subdirectory, and each tile in that column is a file
  • Filename(url) format is /zoom/x/y.png

The slippy map expects tiles to be served up at URLs following this scheme, so all tile server URLs look pretty similar.
