How to find all georeferenced layer URLs

Illustration of Overlay tab in the Explore Georeferenced Maps viewer
  1. To access any of our georeferenced maps and their associated XYZ or WMTS URLs (for adding the layer into QGIS, ArcGIS, geojson.io or OpenStreetMap - see Guides), go to our Explore georeferenced maps viewer to browse our maps and select the dark blue Overlay tab in the footer for your chosen map (see image).
  2. Tileset home page, showing where to find WMTS and XYZ addresses
  3. Once you select this dark blue Overlay tab, the relevant link in the popup box will take you to a home page appearing as shown in the image (or see, for example, the Bartholomew half-inch 1940s layer). Many of our georeferenced layers have home pages in this style, with links to the WMTS and XYZ URLs to the upper right.
  4. You can then follow the Guides below, to paste these URLs and re-use the layers in QGIS, ArcGIS, geojson.io, or OpenStreetMap.
