    Hi Brett,

    Typically, you don't need to ever calculate the row and column yourself. Rather you use a GIS (such as QGIS) or web mapping library, such as OpenLayers to do the calculations yourself.

    For example, you would use the following layer as is (only substituting your API key) and the software will figure out the x,y and z values itself:
