Tiles

Custom Rendering

We provide custom rendered tiles for displaying maps inside a Google-like slippy map. Geofabrik offers a tile server to create and host the tile data. Tiles are rendered using a custom map style that fits the demands of the customer, and updated regularly from new OpenStreetMap data.

The very same map tile can look very different when rendered using a different style. Compare a the international OpenStreetMap style to the German OSM style and to the Geofabrik topo style.

Tiles do not only differ in how they look. It is also possible to produce tiles in different sizes, or to optimize them to achieve a small size or a small colour palette. These requirements are often present in mobile use.
