I am trying to add tiles from a GeoServer instance (using GeoWebCache) as an XYZ layer to a QGIS project.

The demo map on the server is here:


There are at least two URLS where I can access tiles individually:

The server also provides a TMS endpoint: https://gis.lmi.is/geoserver/gwc/service/tms/1.0.0

I have tried variations of each of those as XYZ sources in QGIS, substituting {z}, {x} and {y} in the place of 9, 408 and 299. I have also tried {-y}, to see if that works. The projection for the project is 3857. In all cases, I can add the layer to QGIS but nothing happens on the map canvas.

What is the correct connection string to use?

Note: I am able to add the layer as WMTS, but there are issues with the rendering. I wanted to see if XYZ tiles would be better. See Image quality and aliasing effects in GeoWebCache WMTS tiles in QGIS for details.


The answer seems to be here under "Fonction projecion de Mercator" : http://randochartreuse.free.fr/mobac2.x/mapsources/Islande/Islande-LMI_Kort.bsh
