Enable multiple map layers to be open at the same time?

Hi,

First - I do not know if this is possible already, I can not find it in any discussions - so I assume it should be treated as a feature request. But I would be happier to be advised on how to use it in the existing app if it is already available.

I provide several map layers from a map service I run. They are among other available as WMTS-services and I have customers who bought a subscription to these services to be used in Locus Maps. The map solution I have uses different layers for different purposes. There are two map layers with different level of details of the map - depending on use case. There is one layer with names and one layer with nature reserves and national parks.

Today in Locus Maps (I have a gold account don't know if that makes any difference) I can only have one layer active at the time. I know how I can shift layers by clicking the WMTS-button. At lease as long as they are within the same WMTS capabilities document. When you want to shift between layers that have different URLs / WMTS capabilities xml-documents it is a bit more tedious when you have to go into the map manager.


So, first - is it already possible to have more than one layer active at a time?

If not - I would wish for this feature to be implemented. Also with the possibility to have layers from different WMTS sources active at the same time

Hi Stefan,

vector and raster maps can be displayed in an overlay, see https://docs.locusmap.app/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:maps_tools:overlays. A WMS source can be displayed in an overlay above a raster (both online or offline) or vector map, see https://docs.locusmap.app/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:maps_wms. However, it is not possible to display two WMS sources at once.
