TMS (Tile Map Service) is the protocol used by Spotfire to display map backgrounds as tiles. This is an open standard documented by the Open Source Geospatial Foundation.

TMS is most widely supported by web map providers. Here is a non-exhaustive list of available TMS you can use in Spotfire 7.6 and later.

Here is an example which demonstrates adding TMS layer in your map chart Visualization.
