Cache Tile Size

Hey all,

Since I took over the GIS position in our company I'm making our first cache of our map, which is all of Canada. We deal mainly with street data, so the entire road network as well as building footprints, parks and several other layers we display on our map. I successfully created one using 1024x1024 as a trial, and after playing with labels a bit more I decided to re-cache before deploying my final map.

With that said... I have read in several places here on the forums, in ESRI blogs, as well as the help files that it suggests the tile size remain either 256x256 or 512x512, but it doesn't state why.

I'm curious why this suggestion is made, what the pros & cons are... I pretty much want more information so I can make my own informed decision based on information gathered here as well as our needs in the company.

Thanks so much.
