How to show online high resolution maps?
« on: June 04, 2014, 05:19:52 PM »
I'm looking for a solution (free if possible) to show maps in high resolution online (at my website or not), with streaming of tiles, like this one below:

http://maps.swiftradioplanes.com/sample_1.html

Can someone point me solutions?

And how to export this high resolution tiles in agisoft? Like google maps/earth. Via KMZ export in agisoft? But whats the best config for high resolution?

That looks nice!

Don't know much about it, but they seem to use Mapbox, which does have a free plan you can start with amongst others:

If you only want to display the map a simple option would be to create a zoomify tile set (built in export in Photoshop) and deliver it using Open Layers. http://openlayers.org  Seadragon is a nicer js library but it's no longer under development and I don't know if anyone's distributing a version with touch controls for mobile devices.

This is a relatively simple option as you don't need any special server software although your ISP may complain about the large number of files (mine did).

Here's an demo I have using an older version of OpenLayers (must update this). http://bigben.id.au/files/zoomify/st_louis_dry_img/

There are also services such as http://gigapan.com and http://hugepic.io
