Is there any particular way of getting the current zoom level from the map canvas through python code in QGIS environment? I want to convert coordinates of the cursor and the current zoom level into Google Map Tiles coordinates.

    If you mean scale, you could try iface.mapCanvas().scale(). – Joseph Jan 23 '18 at 10:15
  • Thanks for your comment but is there any way I can convert scale to zoom levels? I need to put zoom levels in my URL to request tiles of the specific regions at specific zoom levels. – raosaeedali Jan 23 '18 at 10:23

Try using this:

import math
maxScalePerPixel = 156543.04
inchesPerMeter = 39.37
zoomlevel = int(round(math.log( ((dpi* inchesPerMeter * maxScalePerPixel) / scale), 2 ), 0))
print zoomlevel

Just install tile layer plugin then add an XYZ or TMS reference to the map with the plugin you will get zoom column row information https://github.com/minorua/TileLayerPlugin/blob/master/README.md
