  • Click Layer > Add Layer > Add WMS/WMTS Layer, or click the icon.
  • Click the Load button.
  • Select the connection file from our gis server, \\gis.slu.se\gisdata\lm\webServices\Qgis

  • Any layer in the connection will be displayed.
    • NOTE: The WMS services from Lantmäteriet have limited access. You have to connect from a computer on the SLU network, or via a VPN connection​.
  • Select the layer you want.
  • Select image encoding, PNG usually displays well.
  • If you want to open the layer in another coordinate system click the Change button and select from the list.
