With the WMS service, it is possible to share data over the servers as image files. Maps are shared more functionally with third-party software derived from the source and capable of responding to the service to deliver the vector or raster data on this server to the users.
It is very easy to add WMS service in BlueGIS. There are two ways to access the WMS service panel. The first way is the 'Add WMS Service' option under the 'Add Map Service', in the left menu.
The second way is the 'Add WMS Service' option in the 'Map Services' in the quick menu (+ sign) at the bottom of the screen.
Parameters to be entered when adding WMS service:
Layer Name: Layer name that will appear in the layer box
URL: URL address of WMS service
Layer Name Used in the Service: Layer name of the WMS service
Version: Version of WMS service
Image Type: WMS service can be uploaded to the map in PNG or GIF format
It is mandatory to fill these five parameters.
Parameters used in the example:
Layer Name Used in Service: topp:states
Image Type: image/png
WFS service is added to the map with the 'Save' button. The result is shown below.
There are 3 main menus in the adding WMS service panel. There is a 'History' button under the third main menu. In this menu, WMS layers added to the map are saved. Thus, you can easily add a WMS layer you added before to the map without having to re-enter the parameters.
The layer we added in the first step is now displayed in history. It is enough to scroll the box to add it back to the map. If desired, easily remove the layer from the history with the "Delete" button.
When you press the button, the WMS layer is automatically added to the map again.
