Tools creating tiles to use Google Maps API for posting large images

If you are posting a large image on the web, you may want to give the user chance to zoom the image without any limits. Google Maps are great example - you just zoom in or out to get the right detail of view.

You may have seen usage of Google Maps API as an image viewer - you cut up very large images into tiles that than work with the Google Maps viewer interface. Look at this example, Google also used this technique to present Google+ project.

I have encountered three tools that can do this, only tested the first one.

  • Google Maps Image Cutter - created by University College London.
  • Google Maps Tile Cutter script for Adobe Photoshop - created by Bram(us) Van Damme (on Twitter)
  • MapCruncher created by Microsoft Research - read the tutorial.
