Hi openforis friends,

In Costa Rica it seems to be a WMS service for orthophotos but it is not working properly when I add it as an Image Overlay -following the instructions giving in this community. Maybe you can help me out, here is the WMS service link: http://geos0.snitcr.go.cr/cgi-bin/web?map=ortofoto.map&SERVICE=WMS&version=1.1.1&request=GetCapabilities

Thank you,

Andrea

It works now. It seems that my internet connection was the problem. So now it works, but not as well as expected. If I use the same WMS in QGIS it works fine, the quality is good, I can see roads and trees, but in Google Earth everything is fuzzy, like seeing a Landsat. Any ideas? If i changed it to image/jpeg it improves, but I cannot see the same quality as in QGIS. This makes me wonder if there is anything else I can do in the properties to achieve the same quality.

I have found a partial solution, as it turns out one can modify until certain extend some other stuff in the link of the WMS properties. I increased the height & width and it improved the visualization. Nevertheless, it is still better in QGIS. Does anyone have more ideas on how to improve the quality?

Hi Andrea,

Right now I don't have time to test, but if you change the width and height to 2048 the quality seems quite good.

Can you try with this?

http://geos0.snitcr.go.cr/cgi-bin/web?map=ortofoto.map&VERSION=1.1.1&REQUEST=GetMap&SRS=EPSG:4326&WIDTH=2048&HEIGHT=2048&LAYERS=ORTOFOTO&STYLES=default&TRANSPARENT=TRUE&FORMAT=image/jpeg&

You can test using this KML : DOWNLOAD KML

Hi, I tried the KML, it looks better but it is still not enough. I can't upload the images because I don't have the necessary points to do so. Nevertheless believe me, the quality is far off. So know I am wondering if it is possible to bring Collect Earth to QGIS, I know how to bring the plots to QGIS but it would be ideal to have some kind of plugin in QGIS that allows users to perform the photo-interpretation in this software.
