I created a layer in GeoServer from a GeoTIFF-source. I can access this layer via WMS through the following URLs:


I have enabled GeoWebCache for that layer.

I want to create a WMTS layer through mapproxy by combining this layer with another WMTS layer. Combining WMS and WMTS to create WMTS seems to not be possible.

You have a couple of options:

  1. Request the GeoServer layer as a WMTS tile set via GeoWebCache (which is built into your GeoServer install) - MapProxy should be able to combine two WMTS layers.

  2. Use GeoServer to cascade the external WMTS so that it appears as "just" another WMS/WMTS layer. Your client can then request both the layers together, possibly using a Layer Group to combine them into one.
