Tile Cache Tiling Scheme for high-res imagery?

I'm working on preparing a tile map package to cache aerial photography for use with ArcGIS Online.


Is there a recommend tiling scheme for high resolution (0.1m or 4")  aerial imagery?


I have read and understood the rationale behind the highly promoted ArcGIS Online | Bing Maps | Google Maps tiling scheme, however my aerial photography has 10 cm res and supports clear viewing at 1:100 before becoming pixilated.

While the ArcGIS | Bing | Google tiling scheme stops here at 1:1,128 the native image is still clear at 1:100.


Has anyone developed an effective tiling scheme that allows high-res viewing, while still getting decent performance benefits of generating a tile cache?


Or is the solution just to extend the ArcGIS | Bing |Google scheme and add a few more zoom levels e.g. 1:500:, 1:250:, 1:125 etc.. via a custom tiling scheme, knowing that this will come at the cost of disk space and cache generation time?
