3.12.0 Web Map Servers
The IDV provides access to Web Map Servers (WMS).
  1. Start fresh by clearing all displays and data Show popup and going to a Asia>Mongolia>Lambert conformal conic projection. If this projection is unavailable, please proceed to the Projection Manager exercise.
  2. Use the Displays->Maps and Backgrounds->Add Background Image menu to load in the background image control. The default view is the Blue Marble image from NASA.
  3. The WMS display allows you to save off the displayed image in either IDV's ximg format or Google Earth's kml/kmz format.
  4. Let's look at a Topographic map.
  5. Let's add some other WMS data layers for Mongolia.
  6. Now, go try to find your home. The Go to Address dialog can take addresses, zip codes, city/state names or lat/lon points.
