Map Tiles

Layered maps of 13 zoom levels . Easy manipulation, fast depiction.

Maps Tiles basic facts

Map Tiles are a layered solution of a digital raster map covering the whole area of the Czech Republic (Map Tiles CZE) and its surroundings to the distance of 20 km (Map Tiles CROSSBORDER) in pre-determined cartographic scales.

They are generated from StreetNet geodatabase and POI in 13 zoom levels from large, to small cartographic scales. Map design, zoom levels and raster resolution are the same for the both products.

Map Tiles content

The content and visual side of the maps differs with each level depending on the cartographic scale. The large scales maps of the Czech Republic contain beside other things all road network details (functional categories, type, surface, direction, street name, road number), buildings and blocks of buildings, address points, a wide spectrum of points of interest, built-up areas, railways, land usage, forest areas, water bodies and administrative unit boundaries. The smaller cartographic scale gets the more generalised the network and list of points of interest is.

The large scales maps of the border regions of the Czech Republic contain beside other things all road network details (functional categories, type, surface, direction, street name, road number), a wide spectrum of points of interest, built-up areas, railways, land usage, forest areas, water bodies and administrative unit boundaries. The smaller cartographic scale gets the more generalised network and list of points of interest is.

 

 Map Tiles functionality and applicability

Map Tiles consists of 13 zoom levels. There are generated small size tiles of 256 x 256 pixels in each level. Distribution on small tiles significantly accelerates data display and switch between preset scales. Google Maps, Bing Maps, or ESRI ArcGIS Online do it the same way.

More-layered Map Tiles could also function as a general map base e.g. for displaying routes generated from StreetNet CZE geodatabase with which it is fully positionally compatible. Map Tiles can be used locally or in the web or server technologies.
 

Data updates

Updated Map Tiles are released twice a year in both reference frames - Web Mercator and S-JTSK. The raster maps are always fully compatible with vector geodatabases of StreetNet CZE (or StreetNet CROSSBORDER) and Points of interest.
