A node.js script to handle breaking image maps into tile-based images for use in mapping applications.

$ [sudo] npm install mapchop -g
Usage: /usr/local/bin/node mapchop [options]
 
Options:
   -i, --input      Specify original image to cut
   -t, --tileSize   Tile size in pixels  [default: 256]
   -o, --tileDir    Directory to save tiles in [default: {currentDirectory}/tiles]

Under tileDir, directories should be created, containing the map broken into square segments. From 1-5, the images should represent smaller and smaller portions of the original map. It's then possible to plug in the tiles to a mapping solutions, such as Leaflet.
