With the WMS format users can consume a dynamic web service directly in Fulcrum. This means that dynamic map layers created in ArcGIS and other GIS software like QGIS can be directly consumed in Fulcrum. Checkout this ESRI article on setup. WMS layers point to a base server URL that contains the live layer data. Heres how to set it up:

  1. Select WMS as the layer type

  2. Give the layer a name

  3. Enter in the base server URL

  4. Enter in the layers separated by commas

  5. Add and edit your URL parameters

  6. Select the member permissions for this new layer

Once finished, click the “Create Layer” button
