If you’ve ever had the misfortune of having to look for Stamen or Open Street Map {z}/{x}/{y} (xyz.png/jpg) tile sets to use in Leaflet.js or the CartoDB dashboard you’ll know just how frustrating it can be to find them.

In any case, here they are. These, in addition to the standard faire tiles from Nokia, Google and Mapbox round out the Leaflet or CartoDB selection nicely. To import them simply copy and paste the full url path and place it into the import field marked with a + in your CartoDB dashboard or the JavaScript line in Leaflet where you define your base map tiles.

In the event we find any new XYZ tiles, we’ll update this post or if  you know of any other base maps / tiles that we can include here, please leave a comment w/ a link.
