  • Spotfire® Tips & Tricks : How to add TMS Layer in Spotfire Map Chart Visualization

    TMS (Tile Map Service) is the protocol used by Spotfire® to display map backgrounds as tiles. In this article, you will see an example of how you can add a TMS layer in Spotfire Map Visualization.

    TMS is an open standard documented by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation. TMS is most widely supported by web map providers. GeoAnalytics Resources - WMS and TMS Layers provide a non-exhaustive list of available TMS you can use in Spotfire 7.6 and later.
