WMS - WEB MAP SERVICES

This Web Map Service (WMS) provides access to some of the data displayed on the NAFI website directly over the Internet so you can display it as a layer in your own map viewer such as a desktop GIS software application. Every time your map viewer requests new data from this WMS it will get the latest version.

These WMS layers are only available as images - you cannot control the symbology or query the attributes of the data. There have been issues with QGIS users displaying fire scar images using this WMS link.
 
Using WMS

To access the WMS data enter the following URL link in your GIS software application:
