WMS Attachments

The OpenGISĀ® Web Map Service Interface Standard (WMS) provides a simple HTTP interface for requesting geo-registered map images from one or more distributed geospatial databases. A WMS request defines the geographic layer(s) and area of interest to be processed. The response to the request is one or more geo-registered map images (returned as JPEG, PNG, etc.) that can be displayed in a browser application. The interface also supports the ability to specify whether the returned images should be transparent so that layers from multiple servers can be combined or not.

Raster Manager supports WMS version 1.1.1.

In Raster Manager, you can create new or attach existing Web Map Service files using New > WMS or Attach > WMS in the File menu. You can also manage WMS Servers using the Servers Manager dialog accessible through the WMS Map Editor dialog.
