Integrating Jawg in QGIS with WMTS

Getting started

The following tutorial was created using the latest version of ArcGIS ArcMap Desktop. The process is however the same for versions 10.0 and newer. Thanks to these instructions, you could use WMTS to manipulate your different map layers in ArcGIS ArcMap.

Retrieve data

The WMTS endpoint provided by Jawg is very simple :

 https://tile.jawg.io/wmts?access-token=YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN

You just need to replace YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN by your real access token that you can find in your account.
