|Web Map Service (WMS)|
The Spectrum™ Technology Platform Web Map Service supports three capabilities which are described in this section.
In accordance with the Open GIS Consortium's Web Map Service Implementation Specification, the Spectrum™ Technology Platform WMS provides the following operations:
GetCapabilities – This capability retrieves service-level metadata including the server name, the available layers and styles, abstracts about the data, and the supported request parameters.
GetMap – This capability is used to request a map image using well-defined geospatial and dimensional parameters containing layers, styles, boundaries, image format, and spatial reference system (coordinate system of the data being retrieved).
GetFeatureInfo – This capability is used to request information for a feature at a given point on the map after a GetMap has been called.
All of these request types are case-sensitive.
These capabilities can be viewed using the Spatial Manager utility. For more information see Managing WMS Layers and Configuration.
