Google Maps Overlays (WMS, Arc GIS Server Tiled Services) 3


Starting from version 1.5.0 there is an option to add an overlay when browsing Google Maps. To activate the overlay please open the navigation drawer and select “Manage Google Overlays” option.

The overlays are WMS or ArcGIS Server Tiled map services. There are several pre-configured maps which can be added straight to the map view e.g. :

Esri – US Topographic Map

Esri – US Topographic Map

WMS – Czech Republic – Topographic map

WMS – Czech Republic – Topographic map

There is no guarantee that all services are compatible with MapPad as some of them are using local or national coordinate systems which are not compatible with Web Mercator projection.
However as long as you can see support for CRS:84, EPSG:4326 or EPSG:3857 in the capabilities file there is great chance that the service will be displayed in MapPad as expected.

To add the service in MapIt just copy and paste the URL’s provided below – when getting URL’s from other services please do not include any URL parameters e.g.

URL to get Capability File: http://geoportal.cuzk.cz/WMS_ZM10_PUB/WMService.aspx?VERSION=1.3.0&REQUEST=GetCapabilities&SERVICE=WMS

To MapIt you have to paste only http://geoportal.cuzk.cz/WMS_ZM10_PUB/WMService.aspx

      Hi, if you publish your map as WMS or ArcGIS Server tiled map service (Google Maps set of scales) and WGS84 projection you can use it as overlay using the extension from this article. Optionally you can convert it to mbtiles and access it offline in MapIt using Offline Maps extension.

      You can access your own maps if you publish them as WMS or ArcGIS Tiled Service. If it is required for offline work you need to get your data converted to mbtiles.
