This step-by-step guide shows how to import radar data for composite and pseudo CAPPI files from DMI's STAC-API into QGIS.

Please note that it is not possible to directly import volume data from the radar data service into QGIS.  

Before you begin you need to make sure that you have QGIS v. 3.16 or newer since these are the only versions to support the OGC API - Features format. 

You also have to make sure, that your QGIS uses the appropriate map projection - WGS84 (CRS84) / EPSG:3857.
