I'm attempting to add a weather map layer (a satellite image) to QGIS 3.4.4 using tiles from aerisweather.

The URL (with credentials) is


enter image description here

I'm able to add the connection in XYZ tiles without any apparent error, but the result produces a blank preview and map.

Is there anything obvious here that I am doing wrong, or is this simply not viewable in QGIS?

  • You are missing your >client_id< +client_secret ie "http_s://maps[server].aerisapi.com/[client_id]_[client_key]/[type]/[zoom]/[x]/[y]/[offset].png" see aerisweather.com/support/docs/aeris-maps/map-access/map-tiles – Mapperz Jan 26 at 0:43
  • Thanks for the suggestion Mapperz. My client id and client key are included in the original string above. Is this just a syntax error of some kind? I'm using their map link builder to no avail: aerisweather.com/account/map-builder – Scott Stephens Jan 26 at 13:36

    I got you key working when I used maps1,maps2,maps3,maps4 instead of just maps so looks like they have a subdomain of tile servers. – Mapperz Jan 26 at 16:52
  • Thanks again Mapperz --- I added a screen capture of my XYZ Connection dialog box ---- Do you see anything that I may be doing wrong here? Still wrestling with the blank results screen. – Scott Stephens Jan 27 at 0:32
  • Scott I believe that QGIS is not understanding the [Offset] part of the url but can get the png in like maps2.aerisapi.com/… – Mapperz Jan 27 at 5:16
