The version of gvSIG that I have on my Android tablet will load OS OpenSpace layers and I wonder whether or not it would be possible for QGIS desktop to do the same? And if so, how? I have my own OpenSpace API key.

This appears to be the (long) line in gvSIG's 'layers.txt' file that does the job of fetching the layers:

101|Ordnance Survey (UK) OpenSpace;6[>],http://openspace.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/osmapapi/ts?FORMAT=image/png&KEY=#KEY#&URL=#URL#,image/png,11,0,200,0.0,0.0,0.0,0.0,1000000.0,1000000.0,EPSG:27700,2500.0:1000.0:500.0:200.0:100.0:50.0:25.0:10.0:5.0:4.0:2.0:1.0, ,1.1.1,88013ECD7A8F379FE0405F0ACA607F60:8824326E25F94E17E0405F0AC86047BC,http://www.prodevelop.es/maps/map.htm|http://www.gvsigmini.org/maps/map.htm


I'm not an OpenSpace user and only dabble in QGIS but this Question has a lot of upvotes and to me if gvSIG can load (= display) via the OS OpenSpace API then it would seem that QGIS should be able to as well.

However, a 50 point bounty failed to uncover an Answer indicating that so my assumption now is that QGIS cannot.

    I still believe it can be done. Your bounty expires in very soon and when this happens I'll start another one running with 500 reps. – nhopton Jun 21 '14 at 8:35
