Using WMS Layers With Scribble Maps

Web Map Services (WMS) are a way of sharing geo data across many platforms. Usually using WMS requires a lot of skill or advanced GIS tools but with Scribble Maps you can add them quickly and easily to your map. If you are a GIS professional you can use Scribble Maps to quickly layer WMS layers on the map and then even add your annotations on top.

For this post we are going to use https://www.weather.gov/gis/WebServices which is repository of government weather data. First select the layer you want to add to Scribble Maps.


Next, Click "WMS"



Next You will want to copy the entire WMS URL.


Now visit the Scribble Maps editor add click the "+" button in the bottom right next to Base Layers.


Next select "Add WMS"


Now paste your URL into "WMS URL" select your layer and then hit "Add WMS Layer"


Close the window and you will now see the WMS layer added to your Scribble Map!


The great part of WMS layers is depending where you get them from they can update every time you refresh the map. If the WMS layer provides up to date data, you do not need to save the Scribble Map to get the most recent data.

If you are more technical, you can use https://mapserver.org/ to publish your own WMS services to be used on ScribbleMaps.com as well.
