I have exported a folder with PNGs tiles and I want to convert them into Mbtiles format to use with Mapbox (maybe via TileMill?). How can I do that?

Is there a convertor where I can specify the parent folder and all subdirectories with their respective PNGs to be converted into Mbtiles format? Thanks!

  • Are they PNG's from an ArcGIS tileset? – DPSSpatial Mar 24 '14 at 16:23
  • @mapBaker they’re from maptiler.com – Alex Mar 24 '14 at 16:32

MBUtil is a command-line utility that can pack a directory of tiles into a MBTiles file and vice versa.


There is another way. I tried and it worked like a charm. http://mapit-gis.com/generating-mbtiles-from-an-image/
