A brand new MapTiler 0.6 is now available together with mobile viewers for iOS and Android to display your own GPS position on maps created with MapTiler even without internet connection. Let’s go for a trip!
What’s new in MapTiler 0.6?
Automatic OGC WMTS service - for any hosting including Amazon S3 / Google Cloud Storage or your existing web server. Open your maps in ArcGIS or QGIS directly after upload.
Offline map viewer for iOS and Android (source codes of the apps are available for MapTiler Pro users)
If you need to publish your maps online, there is no need for Geoserver, Map Server or ArcGIS Server, which are all hard to install and maintain.
Tileserver, an open-source alternative from Klokan Technologies, is really easy to use with any standard hosting that supports PHP. Just upload the maps you created withMaptiler, and you immediately get dozens of popular web viewers with interactivity, including Google Maps API, Leaflet, Open Layers, WebGLEarth and Mapbox JS. The source codes are ready to copy and paste into your website.
All the maps that you upload can also be directly opened in GIS software such as Quantum GIS, ArcGIS or uDig. The hosting viewer comes with step-by-step tutorials on how to do that.
