This sounds good to me. In the mean time I have a TileStasch server set up
for testing/learning.

It sounds like the next step is just get one sample Skybox for Good GeoTiff
file for deloyment Mark.

There was a blog post that said downloads were offered in MBTile format as
well. I have no idea which would be easier to work with.

Can we get any random Skybox for Good GeoTiff to get started with?

Cheers,
Blake
