Hi Andreas,

for sure it would be much better to use the webservice directly but I´m
already investigating with CARTO and it seems there´s no WMS support - if I
have any update on this, I´ll share with you.

EPSG:4326 would be perfect for me, even though I know the original file is
in Magna Sirgas (EPSG:4686).
