WMS:WMS Tutorials

From XMS Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A rich set of step-by-step tutorials has been developed to aid in learning how to use WMS.

The tutorials are in PDF format. They are installed in the "docs" directory in the folder where WMS is installed. They can also be accessed by clicking on the links below.

The tutorials are listed below by subject and are not necessarily listed in the suggested order of completion. Some tutorials assume a basic knowledge of WMS and some build on other tutorials. When this is the case the tutorial itself will state which tutorials should be completed beforehand.

Many of the tutorials have files that are needed to run the tutorial. These files and PDF instructions can be found in the "tutorial" folder where WMS was installed or are linked on the WMS Tutorials page. Additionally a zip file containing all the WMS tutorial files and instructions can be downloaded here.
