How to use a Web Map Service (WMS)


WMS (Web Map Service) is an URL (like any other internet address or link) that allows to explore maps. If you type this URL in a browser like Chrome, you only will see an XML code, however, if you use a Map Viewer like IriMap, you wil be able to explore the map easily. To use a Web Map Service WMS you have to copy the URL and paste it in the new layer dialog box. Then click the arrow to get service's info, set up the layer name and save it.




Why cannot I load a new layer?


The most common reasons are: - The projection of the layer is not compatible with the map. Go back to Maps, edit the Map, and try another projection. - The URL of the WMS is not secure. IriMap is a secured application, and it does not work with non secure protocols. For your protection, it only allows URLs that start with https. - The URL is not correct. Copy the adress an paste it in the browser, to check that the URL works fine.
