here are my notes from first installing Mapproxy on Windows (same route as
1) MapProxy requires Python environment for installation. It can be
achieved in 2 ways: separate python installation or OSGeo4W package, which
is easier for beginners.
MapProxy is installed on top of OSGeo4W by one download and three commands
in OSGeo console (see http://mapproxy.org/docs/latest/install_osgeo4w.html).
2) Still in the console - a sample project can be created and a sample
service can be started (http://mapproxy.org/docs/latest/install.html#create-
Creating a sample project - means just a folder of 4 .yaml configuration
files, and by default caching happens in this folder's subfoler too.
3) Sample configuration has one OSM layer by default. To add my layer, I
needed to edit mapproxy.yaml file - add a new source, cache, layer (see
4) Once mapproxy server is started in the console using updated
configuration - it can be tested by default on localhost:8080. It shows a
list of available layers, services, capabilities, etc..
Hope it helps!
