DESCRIPTION

       r.in.wms  handles  all  of downloading and importing raster data from OGC WMS and OGC WMTS
       web mapping servers. It only needs be  told  the  desired  data  to  collect  (bounds  and
       resolution) via a region, the server to get the data from, and the layer or layers to get.
       It downloads the data in tiles, reprojects it, imports it, and patches it back together.

NOTES

       To understand the data you are getting it is necessary to look at the capabilities of  the
       WMS server. This should be available via a capabilities request (see examples)

       When  using GDAL WMS driver (driver=WMS_GDAL), the GDAL library needs to be built with WMS
       support, see GDAL WMS manual page for details.

   Tiled WMS
       Into the parameter layers the name of the TiledGroup need to be inserted from Tile Service
       file.    Time    variable    can    be    specified    in    urlparams   parameter,   e.g:
       urlparams=’time=2012-1-1’.
