How to use the OGC WMTS service in your map

This tutorial shows how to add WMTS from MapTiler Cloud in your web map. The easiest way to add a WMTS to a map is to get the configuration information directly from the GetCapabilities response.

  1. Copy the following code, paste it into your favorite text editor, and save it as a .html file.

  2. Replace YOUR_MAPTILER_API_KEY_HERE with your actual MapTiler API key.

  3. The next it’s up to you. You can start the map in a different place by modifying the starting position and starting zoom, and you can change the look of the map to any of our styles, or yours, by updating the source URL. See what’s available here.

  4. Create the WMTS capabilities parser.

  5. Get the WMTS Capabilities information and read it with the parser.

  6. Change the source to use the WMTS

The WMTS functionality requires at least a FLEX plan subscription. For more information, read about the different MapTiler Cloud plans.
