I'm trying to get map tile images to display in my application. I created a sqlite database and used WMS Lite server to request map tiles using GetMap syntax.


But WMS Lite is not reliable because it crashes so often. So now I'm trying to get the tiles directly from the sqlite database. Is there anyway that I can download the tiles similar to the GetMap syntax.

  • What is your client? Is your server local or remote? Apr 12 '18 at 9:07
  • I use sqlite so it's local and no server. I want to get the data directly from sqlite file (for example let's call it earth.sqlite).

  • And what is your client? And what format is within your sqlite (spatialite, mbtiles, geopackage, your own format)? Apr 12 '18 at 10:49
  • I'm sorry, I'm quite new to this. So I don't get what you're asking. I'm writing an app using C# that has a map, and the application will download the map as an image to display in it. I used this tutorial to create the database. gaia-gis.it/fossil/librasterlite2/wiki?name=planetEarth if that's what you're asking. Sorry, English isn't my first language.

  • No problem :) You say "the application will download the map", does this mean the user would have the app without the data and that the map/database would be "elsewhere" (eg. on a server)? Apr 12 '18 at 13:32
