WMTS as data source

Web Map Tile Service is a standard protocol for serving pre-rendered georeferenced map tiles over the Internet. You can also add it to the GIS Cloud and to the map.

To add Web Map Tile Service into the Datasource Manager:

  1. Select the Datasource Manager from the Tools tab.
  2. Click Add WMTS in the Source Browser.
  3. Write a WMTS name and URL of the dataset.
  4. Click the Save button.

Adding layers

WMTS is added to a project as shown below:

  1. Select Add Layer from the Layer tab or Map tab.
  2. Select Web Map Tile Service in the Source Browser.
  3. Select the WMTS layer.
  4. Click the Select button.
  5. Choose a Layer, Tileset, Format and style and click Ok.
  6. Click Save on the Layer Properties dialog.

Note: System will probably ask you to change a projection. Click “Yes” because if the projection doesn’t match, the layer will not be visible.
