Unable to connect to data.linz.govt.nz WMS service
The New Zealand LINZ Data Service (https://data.linz.govt.nz/my/api/) provides a freely available WMS service to the public.
There are two WMS URLs which both access almost identical data from this service. One is an old depricated URL and the other is a newer URL that apparently allows for additional functionality. The two URLs are as follows;
Old: http://wms.data.linz.govt.nz/<API Key>/r/wms
New: https://data.linz.govt.nz/services;key=<API Key>/wms?Service=WMS&version=1.1.1&request=GetCapabilities
Where <API key> is a 32 digit hex key that can be obtained after registering a free account.
I have used both URLs successfully in GIS software on my PC (both QGIS and ArcGIS). When I attempt to use them in Locus on my Android device I can connect to the old URL and view the map/satellite/chart imagery without any problem. If I attempt to connect using the new URL I simply get the error message "Process Unsuccessful" and I am unable to connect.
Are you able to tell me whether this is a problem with Locus or with the service being provided by LINZ. The new URL uses HTTPS, could this be the issue?
Customer support for the LINZ service have told me that the old URL could be turned off at any time so I would like to get the new URL working with Locus if at all possible.
As an aside and as has been discussed in a previous thread, it would be ideal if Locus could connect to the LINZ WMTS tile service which serves the same data as the WMS service.
