I can't seem to find an WMS that looks the way I want. I've also checked all of the regular OSM places too and haven't quite found anything.
Can anyone recommend any places to find custom map tiles that I could use in my OpenLayers implementation?


  • Please clarify your question and provide more details as to what 'looks the way you want'

  • Well I'm looking for a simple tile set with geographical region boundaries and perhaps the region names. But in general I just wasn't sure if I was missing some repository or easy way to find several options.

Based on your comment,

if you are looking for a muted or minimalistic styled tile layer, have a look at GeoIQ acetate.

Implement it like this:

acetate = new OpenLayers.Layer.OSM("Acetate","http://acetate.geoiq.com/tiles/acetate/${z}/${x}/${y}.png");
  • Thanks, this was exactly what I was looking for. It still might be useful to me, though, to have a better idea of where to look for different tile sets that I could use in OpenLayers.
