The Desktop users can now upload their maps directly to MapTiler Cloud - and get a map hosting with free extra storage, beautiful base maps, and ability to manage their Desktop license directly from MapTiler Cloud web interface.

Why hosting maps on MapTiler Cloud?

MapTiler Desktop always give you freedom of choice for data hosting. Now we extend the list of already supported cloud platforms including Amazon S3, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure by our own MapTiler Cloud.

MapTiler Cloud provides:

  • simple data management - fast upload of one file per map instead of millions of tiles - no headaches with updates
  • base maps included - display your data on top of affordable beautiful street and satellite maps
  • tools for map styling - easy to use tools for adjusting maps and combining with prepared global datasets (hillshading, contour lines, …)
  • one place and one account - single login to one environment for styling and hosting your own maps, with access management

Data uploaded to MapTiler Cloud can be viewed standalone or as part of your maps using JavaScript libraries, opened in desktop GIS as WMTS or extracted with Static Maps API.

Deactivate your Desktop license online

MapTiler Cloud offers simple Desktop key administration with an option to deactivate your key. After you sign in, go to Account → Desktop where you can add, see already connected and manage your MapTiler Desktop keys.

MapTiler Desktop license key can be deactivated here in case you lost access to your computer due to an unexpected incident like a hardware failure. Note: this option is for emergency situations only and therefore can be used only twice a year! If you need to deactivate your account, it should still be done from inside of MapTiler Desktop.
