After creating and exporting my map to pdf/tif obviously there are different scales of the basemap in the exported file compared to the map I created in the printcomposer. See pictures...

I am using QGIS 2.8.1 on a windows 7 (64bit) machine. For the basemap I use basemap.at (WMS). The CRS is the same for all layers (WGS 84 / Pseudo Mercator).

Created Map in Print composer at 1:950000: enter image description here

And what I get after exporting it to pdf is a more detailed basemap... enter image description here

Does anybody know why this happens?

  • Same issue with OpenLayers plugin and Google Streets. – parallax May 6 '15 at 18:45
  • It seems to be an old and known problem hub.qgis.org/issues/5827 however it has not been solved yet. – parallax May 23 '15 at 19:57
  • The print problem of OpenLayers plugin layers is a different issue than printing WMS layers. – underdark Feb 10 '17 at 13:28
