Forsk Atoll – WMS Map Tiles

A hack I found useful to add Google Maps / Google Satelite View / Bing Maps / Bing Arial / Open Street Maps in Forsk Atoll.

Close Atoll,

Go to C -> Program Files -> Atoll

Edit the file named atoll.ini

Paste the following into it:

Name1 = OpenStreetMap Standard Map
URL1 = http://a.tile.openstreetmap.org/%z/%x/%y.png
Name2 = MapQuest Open Aerial
URL2 = http://otile1.mqcdn.com/tiles/1.0.0/sat/%z/%x/%y.jpg

Name4 = 2Gis without logo
URL4 = http://tile2.maps.2gis.com/tiles?x=%x&y=%y&z=%z&v=37 
Name5 = Bing Aerial

Name15 = Google Hybrid (Map + Terrain)
URL15 = http://mt.google.com/vt/lyrs=p&hl=en&x=%x&y=%y&z=%z
Name16 = Google Hybrid (Map + Satellite)
URL16 = http://mt.google.com/vt/lyrs=y&hl=en&x=%x&y=%y&z=%z

Name19 = Google Scheme2 
URL19 = http://mt.google.com/vt/lyrs=r&hl=en&x=%x&y=%y&z=%z

Save and open Atoll,

Open the Geo Tab,

Right click on Online Maps, click “New”

Select the map source (In this example I’m using OSM) & hit Ok.

Enable the Online Map layer by ticking the layer.

Bam, done.

  1. Hello. You have great information on your site.

    I am not able to get the online map tiles to work in Atoll.

    The event viewer returns “ERROR 5/5/2022 – 2:33:03 PM HTTP Status: 400 Status Text returned by the server : Bad Request” for all of the URLs you provided.

    Thanks again for all of the great information.

  2. Thanks for your hack, did you notice the poor resolution of the maps? I mean that the image is pixelized
