Working with WMS Data

A Web Map Service (WMS) is a popular standard for publishing maps online


What is a Web Map Service (WMS)

For more information on what a WMS is, see WMS

The Geoservices API can be used to access public geospatial datasets via the WMS endpoint (see granting access to your data on how to do this).

The endpoint allows you to display the layers contained within a dataset in a geographic information system (GIS) of your choice. The next guide will take you through loading a WMS layer from our catalogue into QGIS 3.
