General Service Metadata

The first part of a GetCapabilities response contains the name of the Web service (always WMS), the title of the Web service, and the URL of the service.

Note: The Name is usually a single word read by a machine, while the Title is designed to be human-readable.

The following code illustrates an example of this section:


<Service>
    <Name>WMS</Name>
    <Title>Spectrum Spatial WMS Service</Title>
    <Abstract>The Spectrum Spatial WMS Service!</Abstract>
