A Web Map Service (WMS) is an interface that lets a user access geospatial data, maps, and comprehensive information about certain features that are displayed on the map. Rather than the actual geospatial data, a “map” is described here as a visual depiction of such data. A web map service can create maps as images, collections of graphics, or packaged sets of geographic feature data. It can respond to simple questions about a map’s detail, and it allows us to know what maps it is capable of producing and which ones can be queried more deeply. Here in article you can Add View WMS Layer Online on your Map.

To open and view the WMS layer the user has to use any GIS software, which will require prior knowledge of GIS. However, the Add WMS tool on the IGISMap website allows the user to open and view different layers and helps the data to interpret and analyze according to their own requirement. You can also download GIS data from IGISMap Tool and analyze in the same tool. From IGISMap Tool you can add data and share your map with others.

A WMS layer file can encompass either single or multiple layers, all accessible and visible on the IGISMap website. To initiate, choose the initial layer within the file and click on the “Publish” button.
The chosen WMS layer can be published and displayed on the base map. Users have the option to add additional layers from the same WMS file by clicking the “Add another layer” button. Additionally, users can incorporate another WMS file by selecting the “Add another WMS” button. These straightforward steps allow users to effortlessly view and analyze both single and multiple-layered WMS files on the IGISMap website.
