We have generated some maps in our own software solution where the output is a map stored in XYZ tiling format.


I got a request if I could provide it in a WMS. I am wondering if anyone has some experience on how to in shortest amount of time can convert and setup a WMS that can service these images.

The reason is that the map client dont support XYZ and is bound to use normal WMS only.

We would prefer a windows solution but anyhting will do.

You could resort to using Mapproxy. It can read a z/x/y Tile source and provide a range of output services, including WMS. You probably can just use your directory with the tile layout as a cache backend.

You can install MapProxy on Windows if you have the right ammount of Python-Foo :), but Linux is easier.
