Hi,

I am using the WMS feature in global mapper in order to get maps from my GIS Cloud account I can add the map layers to global mapper however when I load them nothing appears on the the screen. (it seems to actually load stuff because it does take a little while to load I just can't see it)

Thanks

    How are you seeing up the source? Typically a long load with no data loaded means nothing is fetched from the server or else all transparent tiles are being returned.

    GIS cloud comes with a feature the povides you with a WMS URL. I just copied that URL into add new source it sees all the names of the maps that I have on GIS cloud but won't show them. would it help if I sent you the URL?

    The URL would help, but first what version of Global Mapper are you using? There have recently been improvements in WMS access so I would definitely recommend first getting the latest release (v13.2.2) from the links below and trying that first:

    32-bit: http://www.globalmapper.com/downloads/global_mapper_setup.exe
    64-bit: http://www.globalmapper.com/downloads/global_mapper_setup_64bit.exe

    You can also save a workspace and post that for me to see, that will show the URL and whatever other settings you used for me to investigate.

    Thanks,

    I updated to 13.2.2 now I get an error message when I try to load the data that says:
    Error loading WMS data source.
    Empty bounding box for selected WMS layer.
    OGCWMSOverlay.cpp - 244
    Version: v13.2.2 (64-bit)
    Build Time: Jun 26 2012 02:06:51

    I will send you the URL since I can't load the maps anymore I can't save a workspace.

    I took a look and found the issue. The GISCloud source is reporting that it supports EPSG:900913 but listing lat/lon bounds for that projection, so a tiny bounding box was being used. I have updated GM to detect this so it can convert the lat/lon bounds without them being listed correctly by the source and this fixes the issue. I have placed a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper13.zip with the latest changes for you to try. Simply download that file and extract the contents into your existing v13.xx installation folder to give it a try. If you are using the 64-bit v13 version there is a new build at http://www.globalmapper.com/global_mapper13_64bit.zip .

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
