I'm serving a large scale raster (warehouse map) with GeoServer. I consume the WMS in a Leaflet web client and coordinates are projected according to EPSG:3857.

But it seems that maximum zoom is limited and can't go beyond scale of 1/20000. Even with the Leaflet maxZoom variable set to 100 when I pass the zoom 18 no more tiles are displayed.

How can I configure GeoServer to increase its maximum zoom?

  • how did you configure the gridset on geoserver - the default mercator grid goes to level 30

That was a Leaflet issue.

The maxZoom was not limited by GeoServer (as Ian Turton commented the EPSG:900913 gridset goes until level 30) but was restrained by the default Leaflet L.tileLayer maxZoom...
