You are asking for the second tile (in the y direction) in zoom level 0. It only has one tile at that level (at http://tile.openstreetmap.org/0/0/0.png).

Something is wrong with your code, or the js you are importing.


you cant prevent this. it says that the server you have used for openstreetmap dont have image at this url.

but you can use this code for image loading error:

OpenLayers.Util.onImageLoadError = function(){

i hope it helps you...

  • Shows a new error Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found).

  • check your all paths whether they are valid or invalid.

  • I've not used paths to create map only added two scripts: <script src="maps.google.com/maps/api/…> <script src="openlayers.org/api/OpenLayers.js"></script>

    @Aragon, onImageLoadError has been deprecated, see my answer below.

OpenLayers.Util.onImageLoadError no longer exists

To replace a tile that couldn't be loaded with a static image, create a css selector for the .olImageLoadError class (e.g. a background-image):

.olImageLoadError {
    background: url(./images/missing-tile.png) no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent !important;
    opacity: 1.0 !important;

For more complex tile loading error handling, register a listener to the layer's tileerror event.
