What are map tiles?

Raster map tiles are a set of squared images placed next to each other, each with a fixed geographical area and scale. A tileset is a collection of these tiles that cover a specific area and often have a dedicated style or purpose. For example, Ordnance Survey provide a tile set call Road, which covers Great Britain and is designed to show the roads clearly.

Choosing a tileset for your map

Your tileset will be set automatically from your master account's default settings. You can either chose to keep it this way or change it to better suit your specific map's purpose.

To change your tileset:

  1. Select the desired Tileset from the dropdown.
  2. Preview the map to see how that tileset appears (optional).
  3. Select Save Changes.
