🌐 Local Tile Server for Geospatial Rasters

codecov PyPI conda

Need to visualize a rather large (gigabytes+) raster? This is for you.

A Python package for serving tiles from large raster files in the Slippy Maps standard (i.e., /zoom/x/y.png) for visualization in Jupyter with ipyleaflet or folium.

Launch a demo on MyBinder MyBinder

Documentation: https://localtileserver.banesullivan.com/

Built on rio-tiler

🌟 Highlights

  • Launch a tile server for large geospatial images
  • View local or remote* raster files with ipyleaflet or folium in Jupyter
  • View rasters with CesiumJS with the built-in web application

*remote raster files should be pre-tiled Cloud Optimized GeoTiffs

🚀 Usage

Usage details and examples can be found in the documentation: https://localtileserver.banesullivan.com/

The following is a minimal example to visualize a local raster file with ipyleaflet:

from localtileserver import get_leaflet_tile_layer, TileClient
from ipyleaflet import Map

# First, create a tile server from local raster file
client = TileClient('path/to/geo.tif')

# Create ipyleaflet tile layer from that server
t = get_leaflet_tile_layer(client)

m = Map(center=client.center(), zoom=client.default_zoom)


ℹī¸ Overview

The TileClient class can be used to to launch a tile server in a background thread which will serve raster imagery to a viewer (usually ipyleaflet or folium in Jupyter notebooks).

This tile server can efficiently deliver varying resolutions of your raster imagery to your viewer; it helps to have pre-tiled, Cloud Optimized GeoTIFFs (COGs).

There is an included, standalone web viewer leveraging CesiumJS.

âŦ‡ī¸ Installation

Get started with localtileserver to view rasters in Jupyter or deploy as your own Flask application.
