Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I've rectified an image/map I have and georeferenced it using the mapwarper at mapwarper.net. Now im trying to get it as a background in iD. Is this possible?

I've tried clicking on "Background settings" and then on "custom", and a window appears and says: "Enter a tile template. Valid tokens are {z}, {x}, {y} for Z/X/Y scheme and {u} for quadtile scheme."

Im using the link provided by mapwarper that looks like this: http://mapwarper.net/maps/tile/2796/z/x/y.png by entering it into the dialogu box/window, and click OK. The only thing that happens is the backgound image (default Bing) disappears and goes to black background with no image.

Any Ideas? Thanks

I suspect (but not tested) that the link should be http://mapwarper.net/maps/tile/2796/{z}/{x}/{y}.png

permanent link

Aha, Yes indeed that was it. So you just need to change the { to the link. Thank you
