Construct and use map tile grids (a.k.a TileMatrixSet / TMS).

Documentation: developmentseed.org/morecantile/

Source Code: developmentseed/morecantile


Morecantile is like mercantile (the best tool to work with Web Mercator tile indexes), but with support for other TileMatrixSet grids.

Morecantile follows the OGC Two Dimensional Tile Matrix Set specification found in http://docs.opengeospatial.org/is/17-083r2/17-083r2.html

Note: Variable matrix width tile set are not supported.
