WMTS online map server for Victoria with Oruxmaps

Postby ken333 » Mon 05 Dec, 2022 4:19 pm

WMTS maps for Victoria can be viewed and areas selected and downloaded for off-line use by Oruxmaps gps hiking app for Android. The maps include 10m contours for some areas of Vic and 20m contours in other areas (I think).
In Oruxmaps, tap the map symbol at top right, Tap Switch Map > WMTS > + (in a circle). Tap the + beside WMTS (ONLINE).
Copy and paste (or type) the following URL:
emapdev.ffm.vic.gov.au/arcgis/rest/services/mapscape_mercator/MapServer/WMTS

Tap the https box. Tap ok. OM will open a box with Mapscape_Mercator in it. Tap it.
Select default028mm in Coordinate system if not already shown.
Check Cacheable and Downloadable are selected. Enter a map name Eg Vic WMTS. Tap test. A map of Vic should open.
Tap the tick at top right. A popup should say WMTS created ok. Tap the map and check it opens ok.
The zoom range is 6 to 18. Max zoom corresponds to a scale of 20m on the OM map screen.

WMTS or WMS maps are also available for NSW, Tas and Qld. See elsewhere in this forum.

Thanks for this info, but is the url correct?
I get "Error reading WMTS capabilities. The XML file is not a valid WMTS capabilities file".
Using the url in a browser gives "Http/1.1 Service Unavailable".

That's strange, it seems to be working OK now.

If you copy-paste the above url into a browser, you should see the Capabilities.xml file. Otherwise try:
https://emapdev.ffm.vic.gov.au/arcgis/r ... lities.xml

An example tile address is:
https://emapdev.ffm.vic.gov.au/arcgis/r ... 117376.png

There is also a tile set named 'GoogleMapsCompatible'. It seems to be the same as the 'default028mm' tile set, except max zoom level is 17.

Is this new? I looked for free government WMTS services for Victoria a while ago, but couldn't find any. Or maybe it just wasn't easy to Google, back then at least. (Or, quite possibly, my Google-fu was broken.)

This isn't a generic Victorian, map, but specifically for Forest Fire Management. But it's better than nothing (which was all I had for Victoria until now). :-)

I've added it to the list of map services on my Online Map Services resources page. (This page is not specifically for Oruxmaps, but may still be useful for users?)

I think I came across it about a year ago. But it didnt work with oruxmaps when I tried it. I tried it again recently, and it worked. Maybe a newer OM version.
