What is WMS?

WMS, or Web Map Service, is a standard protocol for serving geospatial images from a central WMS server.  These images, commonly referred to as map tiles, can then be overlaid on top of a map to add new dimensions of data.

A WMS server can have many different layers that represent these independent sets of data.  These layers can be selectively chosen and then combined by the WMS server to form a single, composite view of the data that is relevant to you and your customers.  You can think of these layers as separate panes of glass that have different map features drawn on them which can then be stacked on top of each other to compare and contrast different dimensions of data.
