Amazon S3 as a WMTS cloud hosting for maps

Tags | osgeo, maptiler

The current version of MapTiler (0.5.5) supports direct upload of map tiles to Amazon S3 or Google Cloud Storage. Such hosting is a robust and affordable way to publish your maps online.

Maps rendered with MapTiler or available as MBTiles file are after upload available in various viewers, such as Leaflet, OpenLayers, WebGL Earth, Google Maps API, MapBox.js, etc.

Thanks to the OGC WMTS standard the maps can be also directly opened in QGIS or ArcGIS for Desktop. Compared to the standard S3 utilities, uploading of map tiles is a way faster, especially for larger maps. The workflow is as simple as few clicks. Watch our video tutorial:
