Web Maps

Retrieve map data from Web Map Service (WMS) servers and view web maps in an interactive window

Using Mapping Toolbox™ functions, you can interact with a dynamic web map that uses basemaps from Web-based data sources to give your data a visually rich contextual background. Using other toolbox functions you can locate and download map data that include elevation, oceanography, weather, satellite imagery, and many other raster data sets from Web Map Service (WMS) servers and create static maps or dynamic web map displays using these data sets.
