I'd like to share this very complex continent/dungeon map I've created online, and the way I'd ideally like to do it is through tiling and Leaflet. I love the "see only broad details, then see greater detail, then greater detail still" effect you get when you zoom into the map.

I've never tried to tile anything before. I have created the map in Inkscape, so I can go as far as creating different layers to represent the different zoom levels I'd like to create, but I really have no clue as how to go about creating these tiles.

Is there some good, free (or inexpensive) software that can walk me through this, preferably with a GUI?

  • This question does not appear to be about role-playing games within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

In order to use something like Leaflet, you're going to have to have a map server of some kind to point it at. They link to Cloudmade to actually create the maps, which is what you'd have to do. Serving it like this is more GIS than RPG, so you probably won't find a lot of help for the technical aspects here. – Tridus Oct 7 '13 at 21:03
I would suggest a different Stack Exchange website for this question - perhaps Graphic Design? Quite honestly, this question is about tiling images, not roleplaying games. It does fit into the on-topic criteria ("Tools and equipment used when playing RPGs"), but you may not get a good answer here. – Emrakul Oct 7 '13 at 22:05
