    Creating own map tile server

    Icon

    Own map tile server is very resource-demanding and requires powerful server with big storage. In most cases it is better to use default map provider.

    We suggest using this tutorial for installing and configuring your map tile server. It is compatible with Ubuntu (tested on version 14.04). More info can be found here:

    Maps can be downloaded from these links:

    After successful start of server, copy the URL (or IP adress) and paste it in BellaDati in correct format (see Map Providers above)
