- all projections;
- client side caching;
- ArcGIS 10.0, 10.1, 10.2;
- TMS and WMS-C support (WMTS is proposed);
- MapTiler support (see ArcBruTile and MapTiler for details).
ArcBruTile is based on the generic tiling library
BruTile. For other viewers based on BruTile library see the
Mapsui project (Silverlight, WPF, Pixelsense, Windows Phone, Windows 8).

Why ArcBruTile is developed:
Because ArcGIS, one of the most popular desktop GIS program around, lacks support for non-ESRI tile services (TMS, WMS-C, WMTS), especially the increasingly popular
OpenStreetMap maps. And because we're bored searching for the always slow or lost or broken disk/service with actual map reference data :-)
ArcBruTile also solves the projections problem: all tiles are transformed on the fly to the desired projection if needed. ArcBruTile makes it very easy to combine data
with different projections.
