Open Street Map and Stamen Tiles for CartoDB in XYZ formation.

This post and all additional updates are now being maintained on Whiteboard.

Screen Shot 2013-01-16 at 2.37.09 PMPartially for me, because I always forget where I put these, but mostly for you.

As I always have to go looking for Stamen XYZ.png urls and had the hardest time finding Open Street Map tiles yesterday to use in CartoDB‘s Dashboard, so I figured I’d make them easily searchable in Google w/ this post. . 

In any case, here they are. These, in addition to the standard faire tiles from Nokia, Google and Mapbox round out the CartoDB selection nicely. To import them just copy / pastry the full url path and plop it into the import field marked with a + in your CartoDB dashboard.

In the event I find any new  XYZ tiles, I’ll update this post and  if you know of any other base maps / tiles that I can include here, please leave a comment w/ a link. That is all.

    Should {z}/{x}/{y} be replaced with anything? I don’t seem to be able to use this.
