If you’re looking to purchase a wide variety of tiles, it may make sense to consider importing them from China. Chinese tiles are the most popular in the world because of their remarkable quality, cost-effective manufacturing methods, and enormous domestic and regional markets. Chinese tiles are popular among importers because their production costs are roughly 50% less than those of other countries. They also enjoy a tax rebate of thirteen percent, which many importers appreciate.
Using the Import Tiles tool, you can import tiles from a cache or an existing tile package. To import tiles, the target cache must have the same tiling scheme, spatial reference, and storage format as the source cache. The tool supports Parallel Processing environment settings. You can also specify an area of interest for importing tiles. This option is useful if you need tiles for an irregularly-shaped area. Alternatively, you can import a complete set of tiles.
