Apache module to deliver tiles created by renderd


mod_tile is a system to serve raster tiles for example to use within a slippy map. It provides a dynamic combination of efficient caching and on the fly rendering. Due to its dynamic rendering, only a small fraction of overall tiles need to be kept on disk, reducing the resources required. At the same time, its caching strategy allows for a high performance serving and can support several thousand requests per second.

mod_tile was originally written for serving the tiles of the main OpenStreetMap map (Mapnik layer), but since is being used on a variety of different servers providing maps on top of OpenStreetMap data.

This package contains the Apache module that receives map tiles requests and satisfies them from tiles stored on disk, or queries a renderd instance to create them.
