In GeoServer, I'm not found TMS Demo, so I read the GeoWebCache doc about TMS, and following the TMS protocol as the doc mentioned, try to construct the url: http://localhost:8080/geoserver/gwc/service/tms/1.0.0/topp%3Astates@EPSG%3A900913@png/5/5/20.png and request my local GeoServer, and I get the picture successfully from the server. enter image description here

So my question is: the url above is the correct way for use TMS in GeoServer? In other words, the clients(such as leaflet) use that url format to request GeoServer is the correct way?

The "topp:states" layer(in url above) is a predefined layer in GeoServer, and I manually seed/truncate the layer using GridSet EPSG:900913.

GeoServer provides a GetCapabilities link on the server home page that provides all the information a client requires to access the TMS service. This is both machine and human readable. There is no need to provide a demo to a well known protocol.

  • Is the link in above picture as you mentioned?
