how to display / insert a card on an orthoplan

Hi every one,

First, thank you to Teodora Enache from the Technical Support Engineer for her help!

Here, you will find a nice tuto about inserting a base map from different origins … (Very helpful)

The Python script is here !

Greetings
Dom

"""
This script should be run from the Python consol inside QGIS.

It adds online sources to the QGIS Browser.
Each source should contain a list with the folowing items (string type):
[sourcetype, title, authconfig, password, referer, url, username, zmax, zmin]

You can add or remove sources from the sources section of the code.

Regarding the terms of use for these background maps YOU will need to verify that you
follow the individual EULA that comes with the different services,
Most likely they will restrict how you can use the data.
