Create custom Extract

If you need an extract which is not included on the downloads page, you can simply download the planet file and make your own extract.

Preparation

  1. Download the planet file
  2. Get bounding box as CSV for your desired area
  3. Install tilelive utility.
npm install -g tilelive mbtiles

Create Extract

To create an extract the tilelive-copy utility is used. It takes a bounding box and a mbtiles file as input and ouputs the extract.

Replace the bounding box in the following command with your bounding box.

tilelive-copy \
    --minzoom=0 --maxzoom=14 \
    --bounds="5.9559,45.818,10.4921,47.8084" \
    planet.mbtiles my-extract.mbtiles
