I'm trying to insert a WMS layer into my Web Scene in URL format.

enter image description here

This is the layer (WMS) in particular:


Web Scene raises a yellow triangle once I paste the above URL in the first box, it seems to me that it doesn't like the format.

enter image description here

The URL however works fine in QGIS, but not in ArcGIS Online Web Scene Viewer, any ideas?

  • This is the webscene viewer within an arcgisonline account Jun 13, 2019 at 10:49
  • What if you use https://www.gebco.net/data_and_products/gebco_web_services/web_map_service/mapserv? for the layer URL and gebco_latest for the layer

To add a WMS layer into Scene Viewer first add the WMS layer as an Item under My Content > Add Item > From the Web

Then Add the WMS layer item either through the item> open in Scene Viewer or in Scene Viewer Add Layer > My Content

WMTS requires the same workflow and can be added through the item but currently not from the URL. From URL supports adding ArcGIS Server Services like Map Services, Feature Services and Scene Services.
