Mango supports any WMS 1.3 compliant service that makes its layers available in Web Mercator projection (EPSG:3857).

To add WMS layers to your account, open the Upload layers window, select WMS from the dropdown box, enter the GetCapabilities request URL of the WMS into the box provided, and click Connect.

e.g.

http://maps.ngdc.noaa.gov/soap/web_mercator/marine_geology/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS

Note: http(s):// is not required.

Authentication

If your WMS requires authentication, prepend the url with your username and password in this format:

https://username:password@maps.example.com/web_mercator/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS

After Mango successfully connects to the service, you will be provided with a list of the layers in the WMS that are available in Web Mercator coordinate system. Select the layer you wish to link to your Mango account and click Save.

To add additional layers from the same WMS, repeat the steps above using the same GetCapabilities URL.

If the WMS server does not contain any suitable layers, you will see an error message.

Restrictions

The service must support WMS 1.3, and also make its layers available in Web Mercator projection (EPSG:3857) in order to be used in your map.

If the WMS does not provide a legend graphic, you will see a ‘broken’ image icon in the legend.

WMS tiles are served directly from the source you connect to your Mango account. If your source’s WMS server is experiencing issues, your tiles may not render correctly. In this instance, please check with the WMS provider.
