Description Map tiles with 32MB of OpenStreetMap data

It turns out that Paris is the only place in the world where you have to go as far as zoom level 11 to get your .pbf-format map tiles to be less than 32MB in size, which means about 3 million nodes per tile.

Along the whole southern edge of the world, zoom level 2 is plenty.

Each square has its edges inset by a quarter-tile from the edge of the tile it represents. Zoom level 0 not shown.

Data from planet.osm, March 7, 2013.
