I'm a bit of newb' at GIS so be gentle with me.

In Qgis I've set up a wms for the British Geological Survey:

http://maps.bgs.ac.uk/ArcGIS/services/BGS_Detailed_Geology/MapServer/WMSServer?

Now the layers are rendering at 1:25000 but at 1:50000 and above the screen goes blank. According to the BGS website they should be visible between 1:75000 and 1:10000. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in anticipation,

Neil

The scale is 1:50000 according to the BGS, so it should be fine within these parameters shouldn't it? –  Neil Mar 8 '13 at 13:09
    
@sunil According to the question, Neil is within the scale range so that should not be the cause of the problem. –  user3461 Mar 8 '13 at 13:16
    
@GeoKevin that's true... –  Sunil Mar 8 '13 at 13:18

I don't have an answer yet, but I am seeing the same issue. In contrast, the Hydrogeology layer comes through just fine at smaller scales. –  katahdin Mar 8 '13 at 13:36
    
The GetCapabilities for the service reports that it should display below 1:100000. It does this for me in QGIS so I'm guessing there may have been a problem with the scale layering in the service which is now resolved. –  nmtoken Apr 11 at 14:00
