Adding XYZ Tile Service

Adding a Tile service in the GISLayer Software can be accomplished by clicking on the “Add XYZ Tile Service” button in the “Add Service” drop-down list under the “Data” tab.

The following screenshot shows the process steps in numerical order.

Adding XYZ Tile Service

Part 1: Add XYZ Tile Service Panel

In GISLayer Software Add XYZ Tile Service Panel has some fields that the users need to fill in. If we briefly describe these fields that need to be filled;

  1. XYZ Layer Name: You can set the name by which the XYZ service is displayed in the Layer Box
  2. XYZ Tile Url Address: Enter the URL address of the service provider (required)
  3. Additional Parameter: You can enter apikey information because some maps are paid (For example: apikey = ahsdkjhqwhekajhsd)
  4. Min Zoom Level: Minimum zoom level at which XYZ Tile is displayed on the map, usually set to 0
  5. Max Zoom Level: Maximum zoom level at which XYZ Tile is displayed on the map.
  6. Opacity: The opacity of the layer can be adjusted
  7. Add: Use to add the XYZ Tile Service to the map

The fields that we have defined above in the Add XYZ Tile Service Panel are shown in the screenshot below.

  • {x}: Tile number in horizontal direction
  • {y}: Tile number in vertical direction
  • {z}: Zoom level

Part 3: Adding XYZ Tile Service

After filling in the required fields in the Add XYZ Tile Service Panel and clicking the Add button XYZ Tile Service is added to the Layer Box and displayed on the map.

The screenshot below shows the added Google Hybrid map and a result view of GISLayer.
