Image tiles

Image Tiles are in PNG Format with transparent background. They are designed to be used as an overlay to map tiles. They are uniquely identified by Quadkeys which are based on The normalized Mercator projection. For instructions on how to identify tiles of a certain venue and how to calculate their corresponding Quadkeys, see resource-tiles.html#how-tile-calculated.
