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.
