I'm a newbie in gdal2tiles & python but I would like to modify gdal2tiles to create 512px tiles for retina display (screen).

Can someone suggest how I can do this?

    There seems to be "tileSize=256" in many places of the script. Try to use 512 instead and see what it breaks. The current code is trac.osgeo.org/gdal/browser/trunk/gdal/swig/python/scripts/… – user30184 Aug 28 '14 at 9:13
  • Thank for answer.I tried that already.the result is picture size was changed only but i mean 512px is picture should have more quality than 256px(more zoom level) and i'm not understand the whole code in that. – user3736776 Aug 28 '14 at 9:26

This is an old question, but I needed the same thing and found a solution. I modified the gdal2tiles.py file (as suggested by user30184). After changing all of the "256" values in the code to "512", I found that the modified gdal2tiles script did create the tiles in 512x512 resolution. I also tested this using MapBox and confirmed that the higher resolution tiles do display properly.
