Description

WMS/WMTS with 'dimension' parameters as described here in Annex C : http://portal.opengeospatial.org/files/?artifact_id=14416 should be handled by QGIS.
The GUI would display the different legal values exposed by the GetCapabilities request in different controls following the dimension type (i.e. a combobox for a list of string values, a slider for a range of numeric values...)

History

#1 Updated by Jürgen Fischer about 6 years ago

WMTS dimensions are already supported.

#2 Updated by Nicolas Boisteault about 6 years ago

Any reasons why WMTS is supported and not WMS? Thx

Just because I implemented WMTS and wasn't aware that WMS also supports dimensions (and AFAIK there was no feature request for dimensions with WMS until now).

Would it be possible to have this feature in 2.14? Thanks.

How about combining the efforts and integrate TimeManager/-functions in QGIS-core?
WMS-Time is partially solved there (besides lot of other functions), parsing the dimension-capabilities is still to be done...

WMTS dimensions has already be implemented so I guess parsing the dimension-capabilities is done in QGIS.
@Jürgen Fischer : can you confirm?

See first comment above.

I think Jurgen is perhaps confused between WMTS (tiling) and WMST (time).

QGIS WMS client needs to handle time as per WMS-T spec.

QGIS server also needs to support WMS-T (and be configurable in Project OWS properties).

not an "issue", but a feature request. This is one of those cases where there is clearly a need by (a part of the) users, but no one has yet stepped in order to make it happen.
