Tiles are compressed tar files which can be extracted either with:

  • WinZip (be sure the "TAR file smart CR/LF conversion" option is NOT checked under Options/Configuration/Miscellaneous) or with GZIP.
  • Compressed data tiles are 6 to 32 MB (except tile I=>165 KB & tile G=>59 MB).
  • Uncompressed data tiles are either 103,680,000 bytes (tiles touching the poles; A – D and M – P) or 129,600,000 bytes (tiles touching the Equator; E – L).
