Madrid 1656

The year 1656 saw the creation in Madrid of -at least- two graphic masterpieces: while Velázquez was doing that, the Portuguese cartographer Pedro Teixeira was doing this (click to enlarge):

A superb map of Madrid in the times of the late Spanish Habsburgs.

You can download it as a georeferenced (EPSG:25830) ECW file and also get the Spherical Mercator TMS-style tiles from here. With these, you will be able to do some nice tile replacements – not only with gvSIG Mobile for Linux, but also with any other software that uses the z/x/y scheme to store tiles:

First available level: z = 10; x = 501; y = 386

Last available level: z = 18; x = 128376; y = 98847
