Add the ability to add a WMS layer to the map

Registered by jason.p.pickering on 2009-09-15

It is currently possible to add a GeoJSON file as an overlay to the mapping client. It would be very useful to be able to register a WMS layer (such as rainfall anomaly, Blue Marble, etc) as either an overlay or a background image.

The URL to the WMS layer should be persisted in the database, and the user should be allowed to in the first instance decide where the Z-layer the WMS layer should appear in and eventually, be able to reorder the layer order through the client dynamically.

We could provide/hardcode the available providers.

First step could be to hardcode available background WMSs and let the user choose his favorite.
