I am trying to display my bing map raster tiles in QGIS. I am using an HTML file like this, except with my own raster tiles, as described in WMS Tile Layer Example.

My own raster tiles don't have a projection, they have quad keys.

Is there a way to add this to QGIS with Python?

I am guessing it is something to do with this, but I cannot quite figure it out. Got through some documentation PyQGIS Cookbook | Raster Layers but with not much success.

My data is currently stored on S3, I have tried this:

from osgeo import gdal

xml = """<GDAL_WMS>
    <Service name="VirtualEarth">

vfn = "/vsimem/bing.xml"
gdal.FileFromMemBuffer(vfn, xml)
rasterLyr = QgsRasterLayer(vfn, "sm")
  • Bing tiles are not a WMS and so won't load using the WMS driver – Ian Turton Sep 20 '19 at 18:47
  • Do you know if there is another way to do it? – ajmcgraw Sep 20 '19 at 20:43

This ended up working with XYZ tiles.

I just put it in like this, https://s3.amazonaws.com/bucketname/key/b_{q}.png and it worked
