WMS (Web Map Service) is a standard protocol for serving (over the Internet) georeferenced map images which a map server generates using data from a GIS database. The Open Geospatial Consortium developed the specification and first published it in 1999.

WMS is a great way to give more context to your geospatial analysis in TIBCO Spotfire®. It is supported since Spotfire 6.5.
