How To Use The Tile Selector

After launching the Tile Selector this dialogue box will appear, please wait

Then another dialogue box will appear with a quick start guide

The application will open once you exit the quick start guide

 

To select tiles you can either click on them directly on the map or you can use the country/state selection drop down list in the bottom left corner of the tool.

To the right of the country/state selection drop down list there is an option to enter Lng/Lat

Here you can enter the Longitude and Latitude of your coordinates of interest

Please Note: You can only enter whole numbers and you must enter the longitude first then the latitude and separate them with a comma

Example:

For Latitude 44.0521 N Longitude 123.0868 W

You will enter: -123,44

What tiles do you actually need?

The Western Hemisphere works where counting up means starting at, say, -76 actually covers longitude 75w not 76w. You may think the tile for 76w will cover longitude 76w to 77w, but it's actually 75w to 76w due to the negative value counting UP.

For example, think of a number line:

-3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3

For the Eastern Hemisphere, the tile named 1E starts at 1 and goes to 2. Tile 2E starts at 2 and goes to 3. Western Hemisphere, tile 3W starts at -3 and, since we are always moving to the right, it goes to -2. Tile 2W starts at -2 and goes to -1.
