I also created this bare bones MBTiles cache viewer to view the tile cache in MBTiles format. This application does not do much, just display the tilecache on a map. To view a MBTiles file, just fire up the viewer and start dragging and dropping MBTiles cache files on to it. You can drag and drop multiple MBTiles cache files at the same time if needed. And also, you can create MBTile caches with the TileCutter. The viewer was created using the ESRI WPF map control. If you would like to see this viewer do more, let me know 🙂

MBTilesViewer can be downloaded here.

    This is great, thanks! Any chance you can provide source code? I would like to investigate getting a Silverlight application to do the same thing you have done with the ESRI Silverlight map control.

    Hey viswaug, any chance you have an example or some insight into getting the ESRI map control to display mbtiles using TileStream to serve the tiles?

    I’ve found this tool extremely useful. Thanks for making it! You can checkout my map of race and income: I’m creating a set of open map layers for the US down to a deep zoom level.
