Add WMS- Two step online view of WMS layer on a map

Explore the world of WMS (Web Map Service) with IGISMAP! Easily view WMS layers on a map.

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.
