Very simple question. I've executed gdal2tiles against a GeoTIFF coverage, composed by several TIFF files. I want to serve the resulting tiles using TileCache.

In the TileCache documentation, I see how to create new layers, using as sources JPG images, WMS layers, MapServer layers, etc (examples here). But the point is I want to directly provide the tiles generated by gdal2tiles as source. So, I want to access my tiles with something like:

http://example.com/yourdir/tilecache.cgi?LAYERS=basic&SERVICE=WMS&VERSION=1.1.1&REQUEST=GetMap&SRS=EPSG:4326&BBOX=-180,-90,0,90 &WIDTH=256&HEIGHT=256

Or

http://example.com/yourdir/tilecache.cgi/1.0.0/basic/0/0/0.png

Using any TMS client. Now I'm using the Google Maps viewer generated by gdal2tiles, based on GTileLayer

Any tips on TileLayer configuration to achieve this goal are welcome. Or any suggestion to serve gdal2tiles output (tiles following the TMS spec) in a different way. I know, gdal2tiles was built following the TMS specs, before the WMTS standard. So, there're probably better ways to serve the gdal2tiles output today.

Many thanks in advance!

" Or any suggestion to serve gdal2tiles output (tiles following the TMS spec) in a different way."

For what its worth, I put all of my tiles in Google's AppEngine datastore as "blobs" and serve them from there...

But, are those tiles generated by gdal2tiles? how do you reference them? do they follow a specific name convention in the datastore? –  jorgeas80 Oct 27 '11 at 10:52
