adjustable tile size for wms
|Reported by:||Cobra||Owned by:||team|
The tile size for WMS layers is hardcoded to 500x500px (see source:trunk/src/org/openstreetmap/josm/gui/layer/WMSLayer.java#L111)
This is quite small, especially on large screens. A maximised josm window on 1920x1080 takes about 6 tiles.
This causes some issues for services with large watermarks which are to be included only once per (larger) view.
This also slows josm down. Waiting for all the tiles to arrive takes some time for slow servers. The server load might also increase.
I suggest to make the tile size configurable, at least via the "advanced settings" tab, better on the wms/tms tab.
Another option could be to make the tile size adapt to the current window size so that there is only 1 tile visible until the user zooms or pans the map view.
