I am trying to get this code to work in the Acrobat JavaScript api. I keep getting 0,0 as the result. Any help would be appreciated.

lat = 65.06518345;
lon = -146.09069824;
zoomLevel = 17;


function getXYfromLatLon(lat, lon, zoomLevel) {
var lon = 180.0 + lon;
var x = Math.floor( (lon / 360.0) * 131072 );
/* 2^17 = 131072 */
x >>= zoomLevel;
var lat = lat / 180.0 * 3.1415926;
var y = Math.PI - 0.5 * Math.log((1+Math.sin(lat))/(1-Math.sin(lat)));
y = Math.floor( (y / 2 / Math.PI) * 131072 );
y >>= zoomLevel;
return new Array(x,y);
}


getXYfromLatLon(lat, lon, zoomLevel)

Do it work with : zoomLevel = 1 ?

Try this :
function getXYfromLatLon(lat, lon, zoomLevel) { 
	var lon = 180.0 + lon; 
	var x = Math.floor( (lon / 360.0) * 131072 ); 
	var zoomLevel = Math.pow(2, zoomLevel); 
	x = x / zoomLevel; 
	var lat = lat / 180.0 * 3.1415926; 
	var y = Math.PI - 0.5 * Math.log((1+Math.sin(lat))/(1-Math.sin(lat))); 
	y = Math.floor( (y / 2 / Math.PI) * 131072 ); 
	y = y / zoomLevel;  
	return new Array(x,y); 
}

I tried it like you have it also, with many zoom levels  It gives weird answers for each zoom level.
 
7 = 96.453125,266.046875

1 = 6173,17027 ;  the tiles #'s are way too big for 1.

17 = 0.0941925048828125,0.2598114013671875.

I am trying to convert the code from this snippet at this site:

using (from the site) :
var lon = -122; var lat = 37; var zl =3;

I get : [2639, 6377]

It is a wrong result?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

How did you run the routine? Web Page?
I have only tried it in Acrobat. Which is where I need it to work.
Thanks.

http://www.maptiler.org/google-maps-coordinates-tile-bounds-projection/

using the above web page, the tiles should be 1,3 for coordinates 37,-122 at zl 3.

zl 9 should be 89,205 but comes up 41,99 in fiddle.

Not sure what is off.
