If you need an extract which is not included on the downloads page, you need to download the planet file and create your own extract.

Create Extract

To create an extract, use the tilelive-copy utility. It takes a bounding box and a MBTiles file as input and creates an extract clipped to the bounding box.

Replace the bounding box in the following command with your bounding box.

tilelive-copy \
    --minzoom=0 --maxzoom=14 \
    --bounds="5.9559,45.818,10.4921,47.8084" \
    planet.mbtiles my-extract-for-switzerland.mbtiles
