We would like to create map tiles to be used via mobile device in the field in an offline environment. The imagery will come from our personal collection of aerial images taken via UAV.
Please check out http://www.klokantech.com/maptiler/ very good software to create tiles from images.
TileMill from MapBox is designed to be code free as possible.
There are some impressive tiles in the gallery https://www.mapbox.com/tilemill/gallery/#kkaefer.iceland
There are 4 steps:
Style your data (time consuming)
Export Map (MBtiles, PNG, SVG)
