A Web Map Service (WMS) is a standard protocol for serving georeferenced map images which a map server generates using data from a GIS database. You can set up hale studio's Map view to use such a WMS.

To add the WMS maps in the Map view, click on the View Menu and then pick WMS maps→Add.
Click on the Add button, then provide a unique name for the service and enter the Web service URL.
