Enable Data Access From Pointscene (WMTS, TMS, XYZ)

Open data access as WMTS, TMS, XYZ

You can access data by individual layers or all layers at once (site level access)

Individual layers:

  1. Open site options (right sidebar or options in the site list)
  2. Go to Publish data

3. Choose which layer to publish and click sharing “on”

4. Copy the link you need (TMS, XYZ, WMTS) (Copy/Parte from link text)

5. Add this link in other software, such as QGIS, ArcGIS Online, Infrakit, AutoCAD Civil 3D and InfraWorks


Site level access

  • This feature is part of our automation package, that is not included in the basic licence. Click “Request Activation” for more information or contact sales@pointscene.com

One WMTS link contains:

  • Individual layers separately: Each ortho photo as its own layer, select by layer name
  • Compilation layer: All site ortho photos shown as a joint layer, with the newest as topmost layer
  • Composite layer: Same as compilation layer, but each ortho photo has a colour and date to separate when the photos where taken

TMS and XYZ links contain only either the compilation or composite layer. Individuals can be found with the instruction above.

How to access link?

  1. Go to Sites, select your site
  2. Open Options and select Publish data
  3. Choose Request Activation if not already activated
  4. Turn Site level access on and off from the switch

5. Choose WMTS, TMS or XYZ

    1. WMTS has all individual and compilation layers as options to choose from
    2. TMS and XYZ are only links to the compilation layers. Use the individual publish links for individual usage. (instructions above)

6. Copy-paste to another software

    1. Any updates will be automatically updated to our choice of software without any actions. Sometimes cache settings might prevent some layers to be unseen. Clear cache if necessary or add the link again to reset settings.

7. Access all your data at once!

    1. Improved experience e.g. in Infrakit with all areas seen at once!

The access link is done to all orthophotos in your site and will be seen the same way as in Pointscene Next interface: the newest layer as the topmost layer.
