I have map canvas and I need to add map layer of Italy. I already succeed to add map of whole world, but when I zoom it to Italy I get nothing. I do research and I found this page: http://mobac.sourceforge.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=519 with XML code. But I am not sure how to add that. When I added map of whole world I just put URL in QgsRasterLayer and that was it. I find i cookbok in cookbook some guidlines, but nothing specific.
