I'd like to obtain higher-resolution geographic maps retrieved from Wolfram geo server, since the standard resolution seems poor.

I tried to increase the "TileSize" parameter, like this:

GeoGraphics[Entity["Country", "Germany"],GeoServer -> {Automatic, "TileSize" -> 1024}]

but it didn't work. How could that possibly be done?

    $\begingroup$ GeoGraphics[Entity["Country", "Germany"], GeoZoomLevel -> 8] will give you plenty of resolution. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Anyone knows why the post @Kube referenced got closed? And why this is flagged with a close vote? I guess it is off-topic in the sense that it is not WRI who decides the ultimate resolution of the images. But there is certainly a reasonable answer that Kuba tries to make every time and of which I certainly didn't know about. $\endgroup$ Jul 13, 2016 at 15:23

This question was asked couple of times so let's keep the reference.

GeoZoomLevel is an option for specifying the resolution at which to render a map.

   Entity["City", {"Berlin", "Berlin", "Germany"}], 
   GeoRange -> Quantity[10, "Kilometers"], 
   GeoZoomLevel -> #, 
   ImageSize -> 500
] & /@ {10, Automatic, 15}
