Caching WMS tiles

Hi everyone –

I’m using WMS service to load tiles over Google Maps and/or Mapbox using javascript in the browser.

I believe I read that the tiles can be cached for faster loading and so that repeated requests don’t count against request limits. This would be very helpful for my application, since we have many users accessing the same tiles (same date and AOI).

Can anyone point me in a direction for getting this done? I’m unclear – can the tiles be cached on sentinel-hub servers, or is there a way to write my own caching algorithm? Or was the caching referring to browser caching, which should be done automatically?

Many thanks,
Dan Cogswell

Hi Dan,
there is no caching capability within Sentinel Hub itself. You would therefore have to implement the caching mechanism yourself.
