I recently received a strange map. The Map File format is "ECW".

I would like to upload them to the "OSM tiles Server" Do you have a solution?

Could you perhaps explain in a little more detail what you're trying to do?

Try asking in your first language if that's not English - I am sure that someone will be able to understand it.

First, the ECW format of the map that I received. ECW file format used in special cases, such as the military leadership, we know.

Second, I "Ubuntu OSM Tile Server" is installed. I want to know that. I can upload the map file format "ECW" to the "Ubuntu OSM Tile Server"

.ecw is a fairly common imagery format by ERDAS. It is proprietary, but there is a free SDK that works with gdal. has more information on making those work together.

You can use a variety of software to server OSM/Google numbered tiles. Mapproxy, mapserver, tilecache, and tilestache should all work, but how to set those up isn't really an OSM question and you'd be better off with their respective support channels.
