Title
Open GIS Web Map Service Implementation Specification

Applicability

A WMS (OGC Web Map Server) is capable of producing maps drawn into a standard image format (PNG, JPEG, etc). based on a standard set of input parameters. The resulting map can contain ‘transparent’ pixels where there is no information and thus several independently drawn maps can be laid on top of each other to produce an overall map. This is possible even when the maps come from different Web Map Servers.
