WMTS (Web Map Tile Server) integration allows users of some GIS software packages to download pre-rendered map tiles from Nearmap servers. WMTS has the advantage of providing low-latency map rendering.
Nearmap's WMTS integration exposes our tile API, which is actually Google-style TMS. More information about our Tile API is available here. Please note that Nearmap's WMTS imagery is only available in Web Mercator (EPSG:3857).
Depending on your application, you may need to provide either one of both of the below URLs to connect to Nearmap imagery.
|Tile URL template||
|Tile URL Template||
The tile URL templates contains parameters enclosed in braces. The exact values of those differ from application to application, in most cases they are referred to as X, Y, and Z. Sometimes they are also called Row, Column, and Zoom or Level. Please consult your application documentation for details on how to configure the WMTS URL Template.
Below is the table that describes the most common parameter names:
|Nearmap Parameter Name||Other Application Names|
|Z||zoom, tilematrix, level|
Nearmap's APIs are authentication using HTTP Basic Authentication. Most GIS applications and browsers will prompt you for your Nearmap username and password when first connecting.
