Type Definitions


Name Type Argument Default Description
attributions module:ol/source/Source~AttributionLike <optional>


cacheSize number <optional>

Cache size.

crossOrigin null | string <optional>

The crossOrigin attribute for loaded images. Note that you must provide a crossOrigin value if you are using the WebGL renderer or if you want to access pixel data with the Canvas renderer. See for more detail.

tileGrid module:ol/tilegrid/WMTS~WMTSTileGrid

Tile grid.

projection module:ol/proj~ProjectionLike


reprojectionErrorThreshold number <optional>

Maximum allowed reprojection error (in pixels). Higher values can increase reprojection performance, but decrease precision.

requestEncoding module:ol/source/WMTSRequestEncoding | string <optional>

Request encoding.

layer string

Layer name as advertised in the WMTS capabilities.

style string

Style name as advertised in the WMTS capabilities.

tileClass Class.<module:ol/ImageTile~ImageTile> <optional>

Class used to instantiate image tiles. Default is module:ol/ImageTile~ImageTile.

tilePixelRatio number <optional>

The pixel ratio used by the tile service. For example, if the tile service advertizes 256px by 256px tiles but actually sends 512px by 512px images (for retina/hidpi devices) then tilePixelRatio should be set to 2.

format string <optional>

Image format. Only used when requestEncoding is 'KVP'.

version string <optional>

WMTS version.

matrixSet string

Matrix set.

dimensions Object <optional>

Additional "dimensions" for tile requests. This is an object with properties named like the advertised WMTS dimensions.

url string <optional>

A URL for the service. For the RESTful request encoding, this is a URL template. For KVP encoding, it is normal URL. A {?-?} template pattern, for example subdomain{a-f}, may be used instead of defining each one separately in the urls option.

tileLoadFunction module:ol/Tile~LoadFunction <optional>

Optional function to load a tile given a URL. The default is

function(imageTile, src) {
  imageTile.getImage().src = src;
urls Array.<string> <optional>

An array of URLs. Requests will be distributed among the URLs in this array.

wrapX boolean <optional>

Whether to wrap the world horizontally.

transition number <optional>

Duration of the opacity transition for rendering. To disable the opacity transition, pass transition: 0.
