wmts7 capabilities3 getcapabilities3

Example of a WMTS source created from a WMTS capabilities document.

This example shows how to create the configuration for accessing a WMTS from a GetCapabilities response. The WMTS example shows how to create the configuration manually.

import Map from 'ol/Map.js';
import OSM from 'ol/source/OSM.js';
import TileLayer from 'ol/layer/Tile.js';
import View from 'ol/View.js';
import WMTS, {optionsFromCapabilities} from 'ol/source/WMTS.js';
import WMTSCapabilities from 'ol/format/WMTSCapabilities.js';

const parser = new WMTSCapabilities();
let map;

  .then(function (response) {
    return response.text();
  .then(function (text) {
    const result = parser.read(text);
    const options = optionsFromCapabilities(result, {
      layer: 'layer-7328',
      matrixSet: 'EPSG:3857',

    map = new Map({
      layers: [

          source: new OSM(),
