Thanks to Travis I was able to access some of that server's maps with
WMS. But not all its maps support WMS.
I was however able to trick mapproxy into loading the correct "export
map" images with a hacked WMS configuration.
But the size of the image was incorrect.
The only thing missing in the request is &size=705,509 instead of
I have verified that WMS and ArcGIS "disregard noise", i.e. they will
both accept "&size=705,509&width=705,&height=509".
In other words, one can make the requests "bilingual".
Mapproxy makes no other calls than equivalent to the one below, does it?
_ts seems unnecessary.
But I do not know python enough to modify the program to do that
If someone could sketch precisely how to add that &width=<w>,&height=<h>
to a WMS request, I would make the update, test it, most probably extend
the "feature" to the other bilingual parameters and return the update to
