NL Tile Server
|Deprecated - See Nederlandse_Servers for updated information.|
This is the wiki for the dutch Tile Server. It's purpose is to provide a stable mapnik-based rendering for the use by third-party applications. Additionally it can be used to showcase new features and services that are available given the richness of the dataset.
The server is sponsored by Oxilion.

On planet.openstreetmap.nl daily updated planet files are available for the following regions:
The basic update mechanism is driven off the daily diffs produced by the main API server just after midnight UTC. These are downloaded and new planet files are created. After this the new planet-benelux is imported and all zoom tile up to zoom level 15 are prerenderd (for osm.xml). After this we start with updating the database with minutely diffs.
Under high load (much re-rendering) the server might have difficulties keeping the tiles up to date due to the high amount of changes. However your changes should be visible within one hour of committing them to the main osm database.

We have a mysql database up and running. Request a database on .
We also have the 6pp databases loaded on the dev server (which updates daily). To login:
