    Hi Mike,
    you can add an additional provider next to the name of your current provider

    To add a map provider:

    1. Tap  to view the User WMS settings dialog.
    2. Tap Add. In the Edit map services dialog:
      1. In the Map provider field, enter the name you will use to identify the map provider service.
      2. In the Address field, enter the URL of the web map service.
      3. If the map service provider has provided you with a client key to access the service, enter it in the Client Key field.
      4. Select the Map service type from the list. Options are Tile or WMSMap.
      5. Tap OK.
    3. In the User WMS settings dialog, tap OK to return to the Display settings screen.

      Wait while the software retrieves information from the web map service.

    4. From the Map WMS Layer field, select the layer to display from the layers provided by the map service.
    5. Set the Map WMS coordinate system to EPSG:4326.

    Hi Conny,

    The difficulties I experince, is that a  viewable WMS map dont appear from the provider.

    So its not the software. Its a provider problem, I guess?

    So I contacted the National Land survey for Sweden for help.

    Thanks again

    Hi Mikael,

    it's a good question I have to little information to analyse the problem.
    Penmap supports WMS which have the data in EPSG:4326.
    It's important to set the Map WMS coordinate system to EPSG:4326 if you are using a user defined WMS.

    Hope this helps.
    Kind regards

    Yeah, i noticed that. And the NLS here only provides open data map in wmts, and penmap cant understand them.
    So back to square one.
