We added WMTS as limited access to WMTS in U1. Please contact me if you need a token to try it out.

Support WMTS(Web Map Tile Service)

Add support not only for WMS but also WMTS background data. Some services offer only WMTS and not both. For users it is confusing as WMS for them is the same as WMTS. We need xWMTS.

  • It isPlanned for U14 but as problems are expected most likely U15 will be usable.

  • It isPlanned for U14 but as problems are expected most likely U15 will be usable.

    I guess you are right. I tried it quickly in just released OpenCities Map 10.05 (based on U14 power platform), and Technology Preview WMTS is really very early beta:

    • Documentation tells something different than is in GUI (nothing available in Raster Manger, key-ins have to be used).
    • No URL I am able to use in other software is recognized, I always had to modify it manually to add service and request parameters.
    • When xwmts is attached, MicroStation crashes immediately.

    So in fact, I do not know whether it works, but at least when xwmts is configured, there is correct preview ;-)
