Configuring WMTS

An OGC WMTS layer consists of a named WMTS layer which in turn consists of OGC metadata and a reference to a named tile. The named tile contains the tile matrix set which specifies the zoom levels.

A tile matrix set can be configured when creating or modifying a named tile in Spectrum Spatial™ Manager. For more information, see Creating a Named Tile.

A named WMTS layer is also created using Spectrum Spatial™ Manager. The named WMTS layer uses the named tile for its tile matrix set. For more information, see Creating a Named WMTS Layer.

The WMTS service and resources you expose to WMTS are configured and managed using Spectrum Spatial™ Manager. For more information about configuring WMTS global settings and adding WMTS layers, see Managing WMTS Resources and Configuration.

Important: Manual editing of WMTSConfiguration XML files should only be done by advanced users who require functionality that is not supported by the current version of Spectrum Spatial™ Manager. Unexpected results may occur when using a manually edited configuration file with Spectrum Spatial™ Manager.
