Geospatial tiling utilities
Tiletanic is a library for making and using geospatial tiling schemes. It’s goal is to provide tooling for dealing with the conversion between a tile specified in as (row, column, zoom level), geospatial coordinates, or quadkeys. It also provides functionaly for taking an input geometry and figuring out what tiles cover it.
Tiletanic is MIT licensed.

Installation is easy:
pip install tiletanic
You may be familar with the Web Mercator (or Spherical Mercator, Google Tiles, etc) tiling scheme, which is the most commonly encountered tiling scheme on the web. There are good tools out there for dealing specifically with this projection, for instance Mercantile fits the bill. If you’re dealing exclusively with this projection, you might get better mileage with them!
One oddity of Web Mercator is that coordinates are usually expressed in geographic (longitude, latitude) coordinates that live on the ellipsoid (WGS84) rather than in units of the Web Mercator projection (meters). Dealing with this kind of conversion is exactly what Mercantile and its like were made to handle.
Tiletanic’s use cases are a bit different:
