I am using QGIS 3.4.2 and trying to access this WMS from the USGS (orthoimagery): https://raster.nationalmap.gov/arcgis/services/Orthoimagery/USGS_EROS_Ortho_1Foot/ImageServer/WMSServer

The connection times out and capabilities won't load. Any help? Think it's a proxy server issue? If so, what do I need to do?


That server was deprecated in 2016.


The official announcement includes links to the replacememt services.

  • Thank you, this worked. The only thing is the orthoimagery available through the links is low resolution (1m). I'm desperately seeking a way to stream higher resolution orthos through QGIS. – jfraz Dec 8 '18 at 15:30
  • I'm not an expert on those layers, but when looking at the service pages I recall seeing that even though the services are named "NAIP" which is 1m, they had imagery down to 6" in areas where it was available. – Marc Pfister Dec 8 '18 at 16:04
