tilestache-seed - seed a single layer in your TileStache configuration SYNOPSIS
tilestache-seed [options] zoom... DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the tilestache-seed command. tilestache-seed seeds a single layer in your TileStache configuration. No images are returned, but TileStache ends up with a pre-filled cache. Bounding box is given as a pair of lat/lon coordinates, e.g. "37.788 -122.349 37.833 -122.246". Output is a list of tile paths as they are created. Configuration, BBox, and Layer options are required. REQUIRED OPTIONS
-c, --config file Path to configuration file. Required. -l, --layer layer Layer name from configuration. Required. -b, --bbox south west north east Bounding box in floating point geographic coordinates. Required. OPTIONS
-h, --help Show summary of options. -p, --padding padding Extra margin of tiles to add around bounded area. Default value is 0 (no extra tiles). -e, --extension extension Optional file type for rendered tiles. Default value is "png". -f, --progress-file file Optional JSON progress file that gets written on each iteration, so you don't have to pay close attention. -q Suppress chatty output, --progress-file works well with this. -i, --include-path Add the following colon-separated list of paths to Python's include path (aka sys.path). -d, --output-directory Optional output directory for tiles, to override configured cache with the equivalent of: {"name": "Disk", "path": <output directory>, "dirs": "portable", "gzip": []}. More information in --to-mbtiles Optional output file for tiles, will be created as an MBTiles 1.1 tileset. See for more information. --from-mbtiles Optional input file for tiles, will be read as an MBTiles 1.1 tileset. See for more information. Overrides --extension, --bbox and --padding (this may change). --tile-list Optional file of tile coordinates, a simple text list of Z/X/Y coordinates. Overrides --bbox and --padding. --error-list Optional file of failed tile coordinates, a simple text list of Z/X/Y coordinates. If provided, failed tiles will be logged to this file instead of stopping tilestache-seed. --enable-retries If true this will cause tilestache-seed to retry failed tile renderings up to (3) times. Default value is False. -x, --ignore-cached Re-render every tile, whether it is in the cache already or not. SEE ALSO

map::slippy::cache - Management of a tile cache in the local filesystem SYNOPSIS
package require Tcl 8.4 package require Tk 8.4 package require img::png package require map::slippy package require map::slippy::cache ?0.2? ::map::slippy::cache cacheName cachedir provider cacheName valid tile ?msgvar? cacheName exists tile cacheName get tile donecmd _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
This package provides a class for managing a cache of tiles for slippy-based maps in the local filesystem. API
::map::slippy::cache cacheName cachedir provider Creates the cache cacheName and configures it with both the path to the directory contaiing the locally cached tiles (cachedir), and the command prefix from which it will pull tiles asked for and not yet known to the cache itself (provider). The result of the command is cacheName. METHODS cacheName valid tile ?msgvar? This method checks the validity of a the given tile identifier. This is a convenience wrapper to ::map::slippy tile valid and has the same interface. cacheName exists tile This methods tests whether the cache contains the specified tile or not. The result is a boolean value, true if the tile is known, and false otherwise. The tile is identified by a list containing three elements, zoom level, row, and column number, in this order. cacheName get tile donecmd This is the main method of the cache, retrieving the image for the specified tile from the cache. The tile identifier is a list con- taining three elements, the zoom level, row, and column number of the tile, in this order. The command refix donecmd will be invoked when the cache either knows the image for the tile or that no image will forthcoming. It will be invoked with either 2 or 3 arguments, i.e. [1] The string set, the tile, and the image. [2] The string unset, and the tile. These two possibilities are used to either signal the image for the tile, or that the tile has no image defined for it. When the cache has no information about the tile it will invoke the provider command prefix specified during its construction, adding three arguments: The string get, the tile, and a callback into the cache. The latter will be invoked by the provider to either transfer the image to the cache, or signal that the tile has no image. When multiple requests for the same tile are made only one request will be issued to the provider. REFERENCES
