  • 1.  Survey Control - WMS Layer

    Posted 19 days ago
    Good morning;

    I have added Queensland SURVEY CONTROL WMS service as a live WMS layer from the following link:

    https://gisservices.information.qld.gov.au/arcgis/services/Location/SurveyControl/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS

    It works fine as WMS service in SSA as shown in the following image:

    But, how can get rid of this white background?
    Is there other ways to use WFS if it is found? Or, can we some how to manipulate WMS service?
    Or I have to download the layer itself? Or anything else?

    Thank you.

    Best regards,

    Ayman

    Hi Ayman,

    Have you tried setting the image format to image/png?

    You can change the format when adding/editing the External WMS in Spatial Manager

    I have seen this white background when using image/jpg, JPG generally doesn't have an alpha channel (translucently) and should really only be used for aerial imagery or other complete coverage layers where there is a lot of colour variance which is well suited to jpg compression. PNG on the other hand is well suited to images with few colours or if you need translucency.

    Good morning Duri;

    You are the best. I really appreciate it.
    I was going to call you after this post if I do not get an answer.

    I did not try it before. I tried it now to PNG format and works perfectly.

    Thank you much.

    Cheers,

    Ayman
