    Get Legend Graphic Select to get legend graphics.
    CORS Enabled Select to check if the tile server supports CORS (Cross-origin Resource Sharing).
    Note: When user will add WMS either secured or non –secured, Spectrum Spatial Analyst will check whether these supports CORS or not and “CORS Enabled” option will be checked/unchecked by default.”
  11. Choose projections from the Choose Projection drop-down list.
    Note: Some projections supported by WMS are “geographic” rather than “projected” projections. Geographic projections use degrees as units and one example which is commonly used is epsg:4326. The Mapping Service does not render maps in a form that aligns with geographic projections. The misalignment is more pronounced as you move further north or south from the equator. Please be aware of this limitation when choosing a geographic projection – as no warning message is shown when adding maps from the Mapping Service.
  12. Choose image format from Choose Get Map Format drop-down list. The supported Get Map format is image/png, image/gif, image/jpeg, or image/jpg.
  13. Click Save button to save the updated WMS configuration.
  14. Click Cancel to exit the Edit WMS dialog box.

The WMS configuration is now updated.
